Strengthening Women and Girls’ Access and Use of SRHR Services.- SWAGA

Strengthening Women and Girls’ Access and Use of SRHR Services ( SWAGA) project aims at reducing  early and forced marriages in Pallisa and Kamuli districts of Uganda by enabling girls and women from marginalized and low income households to gain economic independence and decision making power regarding their sexual health through support groups integrated with savings and credit activities. The groups will enable girls and women to meet their SRH needs and start individual and joint retail enterprises to sell household items including Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) commodities at  subsidized prices to group members. Participating women will become advocates for sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) in their communities through educational meetings to discuss issues such as early and forced marriage, sexual and gender based violence, and the importance of continued education of  girls.
