I had the wonderful opportunity of visiting Faces Up Uganda to meet with the founder, Emmanuel, and Kamnayire, the head of programs on a site visit as part of a learning exchange representing another NGO serving youth in Uganda. I was familiar with the innovative work that took place within the organization, but WOW, to see and learn about the work in-person at their facilities was truly transformative!
The impact that Faces Up Uganda is having on their local community, arts education, and mental health interventions for young people in Uganda as a whole cannot be overstated. Their model is fresh, well-evidenced, and yielding results. They have touched thousands of young people directly and are amazing collaborators who are eager to share their insights, methods, and best practices to others serving youth. I loved everything about them, as well as all the items for sale directly made by youth to empower them and help them self-finance their futures. Support this organization in anyway that you can!
Faces Up Uganda does such excellent online and offline advocacy. They've been doing the most to educated Africans and others about family reunification and keeping our African children safe. Love them!
Faces Up is a great initiative to empower children and young people through art!
Faces up is such an outstanding gesture to society bringing out the best in children bringing the gap between providers and receivers, the fact that a child can do art thus promoting their talent and an adult buying the piece of art to support the child is all intertwinned.
Great work by the team
