CONCERN FOR THE GIRL was founded by Dr. Ann F Hayes and the Late Freddie Henry Kasozi in 2001, Concern for the Girl Child’s major purpose is to empower the vulnerable girl child in Uganda. CGC is a child-focused Non-Government Organization with headquarters in Kampala, Uganda. The organization has since its inception impacted the lives of 785 girls and their families and the impact has split over to the surrounding communities. Through the provision of access to education and health information as well as advocating and lobbying for the rights of children, communities of Luwero, Nakaseke, and Kampala in Nakawa Division have been reached. This could not have been accomplished without the support of partners and other fellow child rights activists. These partners at the national, districts, sub counties, parishes and village levels have made it possible for us to reach as many beneficiaries as possible thus being able to grow into a national non - government organization with the mandate to operate all over Uganda.
