Plan International Uganda has launched a 5-year country strategy that will run from July 2022 until June 2027. The goal of the strategy is that children and youth, especially girls, reach their full potential in communities that promote their rights and gender equality.
The new country strategy will focus on 2 programmes: LEARN and DECIDE.
LEARN focuses on quality learning experiences for children from early childhood to working age while building their skills for life.
DECIDE focuses on protecting girls from child marriage and from uplanned, undesired, or forced pregnancy and sexual violence through increased access to sexual and reproductive health and gender-based violence services.
To effectively deliver the programmes, we will integrate LEAD throughout our work. This means we will empower young people to participate in governance and to take decisions and act on issues that matter to them.
To drive the change we want to see, there will be deliberate programming and investment in children’s education as well as sexual and reproductive health and rights.
The Uganda country strategy will make a significant contribution towards achieving Plan International’s global strategy All Girls Standing Strong Creating Global Change.
Currently Plan International Uganda has presence in West Nile, Nothern, East Central Regions and Kampala.
