Youth Effort For Sustainable Rural Development
We work towards ensuring an economically empowered society free from gender violence.
Harnessing the power of Youth to create an Empowered Society
We are a Youth-led Nonprofit organization founded in 2017 by Ignatius Okore with the aim of developing a cohesive, resilient and economically empowered society free from gender-based violence.
Our drive began based on the high level of poverty, early/forced marriages, gender-based violence, school dropouts, early/unexpected pregnancies and Sexually transmitted diseases in Kumi District, Teso sub-region and Uganda at large.
