Advance Afrika was incorporated in Uganda in 2012 as a not-for-profit entity and later in 2016 registered as an indigenous Non-Governmental Organisation. Our aim is to contribute to a safe and free society that upholds the dignity of every person. We seek innovative approaches for creating sustainable sources of livelihood in order to foster resilience among vulnerable people and social justice in the region.
We work with vulnerable youth, including but not limited to prison inmates and ex-inmates whom we assist by supporting them with knowledge and skills to seek work, develop decent enterprises and/or expand their already existing businesses. At the same time, we promote relationships between citizens and authorities in order to improve reciprocal understanding and trust. Since 2012, Advance Afrika has skilled over 1200 prison inmates with entrepreneurial and life skills and supported some of them with start-up kits to establish small businesses.
