UGGA: Uganda Girl Guides Association

The Uganda Girl Guides Association (UGGA) is a voluntary organization committed to the growth and development of girls and women. Since 1984, UGGA has been a member of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS). UGGA focuses on providing non-formal education programs and trainings based on the core principles of guiding. Their program areas include advocacy on issues affecting girls and young women in their communities, such as gender-based violence, menstrual hygiene management, and alcohol harms. The target beneficiaries of UGGA are girls and young women aged 3 to 35 years.

The IOGT-NTO Movement collaborates with UGGA in a five-year program ”Alcohol Harm Prevention”. This program aims to address the increasing consumption of alcohol among young people in Kumi District, located in the Teso region of Eastern Uganda. By working together, UGGA and the IOGT-NTO Movement strive to prevent alcohol-related harm and promote healthier lifestyles in the community.
