Empowerment Center Uganda

The Center provides survivors with a safe, trauma-informed space to heal and learn new skills. We organize workshops that consist of an informative element (raising awareness), a theoretical segment about entrepreneurship (economic support), and a hands-on component (alternative livelihood opportunities and understanding of social issues such as human trafficking, gender-based violence, and climate change).

We train survivors to inspire others and support change, fostering more survivor leadership and being empowered to claim their rights and those of their community in both the anti-trafficking and the broader human rights sectors.

Our incubator program is a multi-faceted curriculum designed to effectively enable survivors and at-risk youth to attain economic independence and pathways to employment as an alternative to seeking exploitative jobs abroad.

We have a full-fledged Skill Upgrade Program which has converted hundreds of youth into skilled and productive members of society. Through its remedial education project, we train survivors and youth skills in E-Marketing, Computer Literacy, Sustainable Sewing, Arts and Craft, and Entrepreneurship.
