Our Impact

The Gender-Equality Education, GBV Prevention, and Mental Healthcare Support Programs by YTT have demonstrated the remarkable effectiveness of the distinctive YTT Approach.

The diverse curricula of these programs facilitate direct engagement with schoolchildren, empowering teachers, communities, and school systems. They tackle prevalent barriers to mental healthcare and provide assistance to individuals grappling with anxiety and depressive disorders through specialised depression and anxiety management.

The transformative programs offered by YTT have left a lasting impact on the lives of over 100,000 individuals across the globe

We strategically implement our Gender-Equality Education and GBV Prevention Programs in the refugee settlements of Bidi Bidi, Rwamwanja, and Nakivale. Our Mental Healthcare Support Program, clinically managed and grounded in evidence-based practices, has undergone extensive research in multiple countries. Currently, it is actively operating in the United States and Italy.
