Our recent partnerships

Our partnerships in Uganda

UYONET’s current stature as a leading youth advocacy agency is partly due to the result-based partnership we have had with the British Council. Our new programming approach has to a great extent leveraged the jointly-executed project of ‘Ours by Right’.– Emmanuel Kitamirike, Executive Director, Uganda Youth Network
