We are thrilled to announce our latest financial collaboration with the Hivos Project. In the previous year, 2013, TAHI successfully secured a grant from the Hivos and regional SRHR fund, paving the way for the implementation of a one-year initiative known as The MVoices Project.
This project is strategically designed to increase the participation and representation of youth with disabilities in national policy formulation spaces. Targeting the densely populated Wakiso and Mukono districts, which harbor the largest number of people with disabilities in Uganda, our goal is to effect positive change in these communities.
The MVoices Project aims to empower 50 youth with disabilities as transformative agents within the two districts. Through capacity-building, these youths will be equipped to advocate for the needs and rights of youth with disabilities.
The project is committed to forging strong partnerships with local leaders, the Ministry of Health, and Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) to create an inclusive and supportive environment for youth with disabilities.
We are proud to share that the launch of The MVoices Project has already taken place in both districts, receiving attention from major media outlets. Stories about the project have been featured in the Daily Monitor and New Vision paper, the two largest print media companies in the country.
