ABOUT US

We strive for a Country free from child torture, child marriage and gender based violence. We work everyday for the health and rights of the most vulnerable in our society. We want their rights respected and their quality of life improved.

OUR STORY

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.

MISSION

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.

WHY CEFARH

We are Ugandans

We are Ugandans,
we love our community and we work at grassroots level.

Everyday in the field

We work everyday in the field. Each of us is directly involved in our projects, living side by side to the people who need help.

Simple organization

Our organizational structure is simple, cut to the bone: we want that every part of every single penny goes for our project.

Small but not alone

We can be small but we are not alone: CEFARH is a member of Girl not Brides and a Regional member of NUNGOA (Northern Uganda Non Governmental Organization).
We also work in partnership with CCYD Malawy
