Opening Doors: Uganda

The second Opening Doors Appeal project was launched in August 2022, in the Soroti District of Eastern Uganda. Managed the Soroptimist International Africa Federation, this project will be working together with our partner Rose Academies, an organisation which has worked in rural communities in Sub Saharan Africa for the past nine years, whose guiding principles are that social justice, human rights, and education are the foundations for positive change. 

The project has seen 30 out-of-school girls and young women aged between 11 and 22 years being provided with the opportunity to learn about nutrition, healthcare, life skills, and parenting, so they understand the values of education and are inspired to stay in school to make better-informed decisions about their lives. The programme also promotes positive legal and behavioural change at all levels, from the local community to broader political constituencies.
