Young Women’s Initiative for Development (Ywide)

Ywide is a women-led grassroots group based in Northern Uganda. The organisation was founded in 2005 to equip girls and women with the knowledge and skills to claim their rights and meaningfully participate in public life in the Acholi sub region. Ywide also runs a Young Women Centre to provide alternative education opportunities, such as life skills training, life coaching and vocational skills training to girls, young mothers and vulnerable youth who dropped out of school at an early stage.
