Girl Up Initiative Uganda (GUIU) is a young-women led organization working to provide young women and girls with opportunities to succeed and thrive as leaders in their slum communities through a holistic education and economic empowerment program. We envision a world where girls get to reach and tap into their full potential through access to an education, and develop into economically independent, empowered young women who can fully contribute to their families and communities as a whole.
Girl Up Initiative Uganda is a global citizen because we work towards creating a gender equal world, one community at a time.
