Our 2019 -2020 Projects
Promoting and integrating entrepreneurial teaching, learning and financial education in both formal and informal education systems in Uganda.
Delivery to Adolescents (SIPSDA) Funded by UNICEF and implemented by PEDN and Aflatoun International, SIPSDA is one-year pilot quality intervention that strengthens the capacities of 90 schools and 60 out of school youth groups in Isingiro district of Uganda.
Schools serve as integrated platforms that support adolescents in developing life skills across the four core elements, including: active citizenship, learning, personal empowerment, and employability.
PEDN in partnership with The International Community of Women living with HIV Eastern Africa (ICWEA) and Aidsfonds are implementing a one-year pilot project called “Girls Take Lead project”, targeting 500 vulnerable Adolescent Girls and Young Women (AGYW) between 15-24 years in Masaka district.
The goal of the project is to address the underlying structural factors (such as poverty and harmful gender norms) that disempower adolescent girls and young women and they end up engaging in transactional sex which exposes them to the dangers of acquiring HIV/AIDS.
The PEDN Academy is the social enterprise branch of The Private Education Development Network. All the activities of the Academy, adds up to better training, practical skills, and real-world results for the young persons and the youth.
