Upcoming Events

Our strategic plan is comprised of a unique, interrelated and interdependent cohort of themes all geared towards sustainable livelihoods of youth in Uganda. Our work is coined around social entrepreneurship, emphasizing the need for a sustainable social value and social good for any entrepreneurial initiative. We work across five significant areas: Community Engagement for Transformation and Peace-Building; Rehabilitation, Reformation and Reintegration of Offenders (RRR); Creation of Employment Opportunities; Skill Building Vulnerable Individuals to Support Workplace Success; Advocacy and Communication for Changed Systems, Policies and Mindsets.

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT FOR TRANSFORMATION AND PEACE BUILDING

Advance Afrika has a unique offering when it comes to peace building. We understand both the conceptual framework and the practicalities of restorative justice. Through excellent relationships with community leaders and police at a district level, we are ideally placed to mitigate the root causes of vulnerability to criminality. In addition, our work on victim offender relationships, positions us to support reconciliation effectively, reducing the likelihood of a descent into armed conflict with the inevitable devastating consequences.

REHABILITATION, REFORMATION AND REINTEGRATION OF OFFENDERS

As an organization, we have gained national acclaim for our ground-breaking work with young offenders. Based on a solid research foundation, our approaches have been highly effective in restoring ex-offenders into communities, giving them hope and a future, and reducing recidivism. We have excellent relationships with the Uganda Prisons Service, and a history of working collaboratively with staff and social workers in prison. As a result, we have a unique niche in working transformatively with these extremely vulnerable individuals. Read more >

CREATION OF EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES

As an organization, we have a track record of transformation of vulnerable youth through a range of highly effective interventions. Classroom training has been blended with mentorship / coaching programs which, critically, have had the double-purpose of engaging community members with vulnerable individuals. This has the combined effect of giving the young person a sponsor in the community and an opportunity for re-parenting. This transformative model is now proven and worth reproducing. Read more >

SKILL BUILDING VULNERABLE INDIVIDUALS TO SUPPORT WORKPLACE SUCCESS

Advance Afrika has a track record of supporting young people in job creation through entrepreneurship training and mentoring. As a result, the team has valuable know-how in what it takes to run a business in a disadvantaged community. The demographic time-bomb in Uganda requires an innovative approach to job creation and there is a growing awareness that entrepreneurship Read more >

ADVOCACY AND COMMUNICATION FOR CHANGED SYSTEMS, POLICIES AND MINDSETS

Critical to effectiveness in other areas is our capacity to influence the enabling environment. Unfortunately, vulnerability of individuals in the community is interconnected with large scale systemic issues such as poor infrastructure development, un-supportive legislation, low capacity in government institutions and lack of political will.
