Creating tools, platforms, and opportunities for the most marginalized youth in Uganda

Vijana Corps enables the last-mile youth of Uganda to be seen and heard by providing tools, platforms, and safe spaces. Working through community-based youth-hubs, the goal is to facilitate achieving social justice and equitable development in Uganda. The process gives the youth access to information and a platform for free expression. It equips them with skills and resources for economic empowerment and puts them at the forefront of participatory leadership and accountability processes at all levels.

Vijana Corps engages youth through Digital and Access rights, Economic Empowerment and Participatory leadership activities. They work with youth at the community level, mobilizing them to generate a vision for social justice and establishing a mutual accountability agenda among them.
