Welcome to Amplified Voices Network Uganda

AMPLIFIED VOICES NETWORK UGANDA (AVNU) is a Non Government Organization composed of people whose common belief is that through empowerment of families, elderly and social units, many children can be protected from engaging into indecent activities that expose them to getting into conflict with the law. The organization aims at reducing the number of children that are sent to institutionalized care(remand homes) , enhance access to information, legal representation, increase education and skills development of the vulnerable groups so that they can solve the challenge of lack of descent work, poor parenting  and poverty in their own community.
