About Us

HISTORY

The seeds of OUR STORY were sown in the founder’s personal experience: “I believe my journey with Mentoring and Empowerment Programme for Young Women (MEMPROW) started the day my mother learned that she was to be married to a man she hardly knew.She had gone home for holidays from Gayaza High School, the best school for girls even then. A few days into her holiday, she noticed that there was more activity than usual in her home. When she asked her brother what the action was about, she was shown a new group of cows and was told that they were the bride wealth paid for her.

BIRTH OF VIJANA AFRICA

VIJANA AFRICA was born out of a righteous anger about what is happening to girls and young women today, but most especially the culture of silence that shrouds defilement and domestic violence.Together with the support of her husband in 2008, MEMPROW was established as a feminist organisation that brings girls together in institutions of learning and out-of-school young women from across Uganda to provide them with the skills and knowledge they need to become successful, confident, and self-reliant individuals.
