In ending stigma and discrimination;

Extend A Life Initiative Uganda strives to ensure the fundamental involvement of the discriminated and underserved rural and peri-urban community marginalized groups who have often been left out of national planning, implementation, development, health, human rights and service provision programs in Uganda.

This realized through ensuring improved access to information, human rights awareness development programs, health services and social economic strengthening in our areas of operation with the major focus on rural areas.
