Girls are the future of the Nation and creating a safe space for girls, empowering them and giving them a second chance to education,  employment opportunities, address their health needs can reduce their vulnerability and contribute to leaving no one behind in achieving the gender equality agenda. Foundation for Integrated Rural  Development ( FIRD) Uganda , https://fird-ug.org  seeks to  empower  and amplify the voices of girls in our community Northern Uganda and continue to give hope to  the girls who have succumb  conflict-related sexual  violence , pushed to forced child marriages, denied their reproductive health rights, denied access to education and denied the right to enjoy their human rights.  

Girls' Rights matter and this is why we seek to bring social change and hope to those that affected in our community. 

Join us to make a difference

Hi Harrie,
A warm welcome to welcome pulse and congrats on your first post. That is definitely the spirit around here.
Speaking up for and lifting our communities. Your project is great, our future is our girls and without their empowerment we might not know what the future holds.
Keep up your great efforts and like Hannah says I will like to know more about the happenings in your organization.
Have a great weekend.
