Our journey is in driving change to advance children’s rights and equality for girls by working with children, young people, our supporters, and partners in all aspects.

Our Work Focus

Share Child Opportunity Eastern and Northern Uganda (SCOEN) is providing children, girls, and young women with opportunities to succeed, thrive as leaders in communities through a holistic education, economic empowerment programs. We envision a gender-equal world where girls thrive and lead.

We aim not only to improve

Improve the daily lives of girls but also to advance their position and value in society, whilst actively. We believe that investing in and uplifting children, youth—especially girls and young women— is the solution to our world’s complex issues. We are committed to making a lasting impact on the lives of the most vulnerable and excluded children while promoting greater equality for girls.

Adolescent School Based Program

Our program is an in-school program that focuses on building adolescent girls’ capacities for individual empowerment and social flourishment, especially in patriarchal environments that do not value and respect the rights of girls and women. Tackling gender inequalities head-on to ensure that women and girls become advocates for their human rights and build their self-esteem, autonomy, and self-worth.

Boys and Men Engagement

Our program engages boys and men so that they have the mentorship, space, and awareness to form positive masculine identities and become allies of gender equality and equip them with the knowledge and information to challenge deeply-held gender normative attitudes and beliefs and improve their knowledge around key areas such as sexual and reproductive health and rights and gender-based violence.

Transform Unequal Gender Norms

Girls and young women need to be included in making decisions, from the household level to the national level where laws are made for all Ugandans. Beliefs that limit girls and young women need to be changed by sharing information so that all people know the importance of girls and young women in society and how they contribute to safer, healthier and more advanced communities.
