Spearheading open discussions on HIV with teen moms
“Our girls do not only become mothers at an early age, some of them contract HIV Aids the very first time they engage sexually. I would encourage us all to keep the discussion open.” Barbara I. Kyagulanyi
Our founder Barbara Itungo Kyagulanyi (Mrs) met new entrants to our “Teen Mothers skilling project” in the outskirts of Kampala City. Most of these teen moms aged between 17 and 19 got pregnant during the covid19 pandemic lockdown and they had no hope of going back to school when schools finally open. On discovering how little they knew about HIV Aids, she took the initiative to have an open discussion about the scourge, stigma, condom use and ARV’s.

We believe that menstrual health, primary healthcare & proper hygiene is a basic right. We can't wait for government to do ALL the work when we can help. The little we can do, we must do.
