We are Youth Plus Policy Network (YPPN) also known as YOUTHPLUS.
We are a youth-led and focused, non-profit community development organization based in Wakiso district in Uganda.
We work to empower and connect youth so that they can be active in the communities where they live and work.
In order to achieve our mission, we create safe and brave spaces for young people to engage on issues that affect them at the community, national and global level.
We empower them with knowledge, information and facilitate them to access productive resources and services to enable them achieve their full potential in life.

OUR TECH STORY
In 2020, we began a journey of integrating technology into our work and our teams are out and about developing tech-based solutions to tackle society problems driven and informed by the local context.
With technical and financial support from Planned Parenthood Global (PPG) and Nailab Kenya through the IDEA Initiative Africa we are developing SENGA 2.0 a tech-based solution to tackle issues faced by youth to access accurate, caring, safe and confidential Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) information and services.
