Holistically transforming societies

OUR SCHOOL PROJECT

Uganda is ranked having the highest school dropout rates in East Africa.(UNESCO 2011), leading to high teenage pregnancy rates estimated at 25% (UNICEF, 2011). Teenage pregnancy profoundly affects girls’ life trajectories, damages their psychosocial development, contributes to poor health outcomes for girls and their children, negatively affects their educational and employment opportunities, and contributes to the perpetuation of intergenerational cycles of poor health and poverty.

ABOUT US

Smile Again Families, Uganda is a registered non-profit CBO that supports abused and troubled teenage mothers. We help women re – discover their life purpose and inner-worth, lead social and economic change through psycho-social support, vocational and entrepreneurial skills trainings.

PROJECT GOAL

The overall goal of this project is to equip teenage mothers with life skills, hands-on skills (book making), business skills (computer training), entrepreneurial and vocational skills like tailoring and hairdressing which are key in empowering women to create sustainable income for improved livelihoods.
