The League supports Just Like My Child Foundation's mission to empower vulnerable adolescent girls. Our work is driven by love and the possibility of the unreasonable, because we believe that every child is just like my child.
In central Uganda, Just Like My Child Foundation (JLMC) has locked arms with a growing army of parents, teachers, health care providers, local police, and concerned community members who now have the tools to rise up and protect the rights of children — especially girls.
Through the Girl Power Project®, girls are gaining the tools they need to stay in school and protect themselves from the obstacles they face living in poverty—forced child marriage, early pregnancy, disease, and violence.
When you join The League, you empower 10 adolescent girls living in poverty with the skills, resources, and networks of support that help them reach their full potential to live their best life.
