Plan InternationalIn partnership with Plan International, this programme aims to tackle unequal power relations and challenge harmful social norms that perpetuate the insecurity and exclusion of girls in Kampala, Uganda.
In many of the communities we work in, girls are faced with increased risks and historical inequalities. The Plan International 'Safer Cities for Girls' programme goal has been developed to build safe, accountable, and inclusive cities with and for adolescent girls (aged 13-18). The outcomes of the programme include increased safety and access to public spaces, increased active and meaningful participation in urban development and governance and increased autonomous mobility in the city for girls.
Brass for Africa provides a comprehensive twice-weekly Music and Life-Skills programme in three centres across Kampala: Kawempe Youth Centre, Youth Empowerment Link, Kasanvu Brass Band. Learning music promotes teamwork, diversity and inclusivity. Our partnership with Plan International creates a safe space for girls and women in society to learn and perform equally with their male counterparts. By training girls and boys together and arranging regular performance opportunities, girls gain fundamental skills that boost their self-confidence, resilience and sense of belonging. They learn to work together to achieve an objective hence venturing out to occupy their rightful space in society.
