To prevent and respond to child marriage and abuse, gender based violence, sexual reproductive health and right and early union.
Founded in 2010 by a group of Ugandan medical students, CEFARH (Centre For Adolescent Reproductive Health) works to be a voice for the voiceless and the oppressed.
We started with the aim of helping young people affected by HIV/AIDS, reducing teenage pregnancy and decreasing child marriage.
Activities and scope of the organization broadened during the years: child marriage and teenage pregnancy are still pillars of our work and we added other projects to improve population overall quality of life.
WHAT WE’VE DONE SO FAR
- 535 school dropouts reached by our vocational skills program
- 121 children under sponsorship in secondary school
- 334 children under sponsorship in primary school and nursery
- 1743 women reached by mobile health service and cancer screening
- 3 districts reached
- 22 schools reached
Provide appropriate opportunities to enable people – especially young women, people with disabilities and children – to take control of their bodies and lives, have their rights respected and improve their quality of life so they can live to their fullest potential.
We have different projects in place that focus on 3 strategic areas
We work on strengthening early childhood care with emphasis on the most deprived and vulnerable children.
We operate to increase access, quality and sustainability of an inclusive primary education.
A lot of our projects are focused on improving adolescent access to information, life skills and essential services. We work hard to reduce their vulnerability to HIV, teenage pregnancy rate and number of violence cases.
We are small but we are not alone: we work in partnership with many other agents of change
