Our Work

 

 

Amani Initiative was founded in 2011 by Ugandan youth to prevent and respond to teenage pregnancy and child marriage through low cost-high impact community led solutions. 
Over the years the organization has expanded it’s work across other forms that hinder children and women from living a life of dignity and reaching to their full potential which has guided the current 2020-2030 theory of change.
We are currently active across the West Nile, Acholi, Lango and Central Sub-Regions of Uganda with a mandate to operate across Uganda.
