UGGA: Uganda Girl Guides Association

IOGT-NTO Movement, in partnership with the Uganda Girl Guides Association (UGGA), is embarking on a transformative five-year program titled ”Alcohol Harm Prevention” in Kumi District, situated in the Teso region of Eastern Uganda. This collaborative effort is driven by a shared commitment to addressing the rising trend of alcohol consumption among young people and its detrimental impacts on the community.

At the heart of our program is a comprehensive approach to preventing alcohol-related harm and promoting healthier lifestyles among the youth in Kumi District. Through targeted interventions, educational initiatives, and community engagement, we aim to empower young individuals with the knowledge and skills necessary to make informed choices regarding alcohol use.

Central to our strategy is raising awareness about the risks associated with alcohol consumption and fostering a supportive environment that encourages positive behaviors and alternatives. By collaborating closely with local stakeholders, including youth groups, educators, parents, and community leaders, we seek to implement sustainable solutions that address the root causes of alcohol misuse.

Through this joint endeavor, the IOGT-NTO Movement and UGGA aspire to create lasting change in Kumi District, promoting a culture where young people can thrive without succumbing to the harms of alcohol. By investing in prevention and education, we aim to build a healthier and more resilient community, paving the way for a brighter future for the youth of Eastern Uganda.
