Social Impact Project for Enhancement of Arts and Craft Education Curriculum
Project Description and Impact
Faces Up is a youth-led non-profit organization helping underprivileged young people in Uganda to build a happy and stable future. Using creative arts development and one-to-one mentorship, we aspire to heal fractured lives, provide meaningful opportunities, and encourage young people to fulfill their true potential.
In Uganda, 10,442,000 young people below 15 years are faced with psychosocial distress (UNICEF 2022).
We strongly believe that every young person has the right to be healthy and happy, to express themselves creatively, and to reach their full potential. Achieving this requires a safe space, reliable support, trust and understanding, and full accessibility.
Yet too many young people in Uganda find themselves on the margins, prevented from accessing life-changing opportunities, and disempowered from breaking cycles of negative life outcomes.
We need support from a curriculum developer to guide the enhancement and documentation of our activities to enable us to easily scale and replicate our impact. The developed curriculum will then be shared with school teachers to implement our activities to their respective learners.
