    MISSION

    Our mission is to raise awareness of and prevent acid and burns violence in Uganda, empower survivors by providing them support in their rehabilitation, confidence in their physical appearance, and hope for the future, and collaborate with acid attack rehabilitation centers globally to bring an end to acid violence. Our motto of ‘Unveiling the Scars’ reflects our ethos of encouraging survivors to live boldly and without shame.

    NEXT STEPS

    Our next step is to focus more on information and resource mobilization to enhance the now existing initiatives by the different groups, identify available resources and play a referral role.

    PHILOSOPHY
    Promote a survivor led model instead of a representative model.
    Make survivors take the lead in the campaign against acid attack violence in Uganda.
    Create support groups and mentor survivors to become ambassadors in their communities to eliminate stigma, discrimination and the associated stereotypes
    Promote a facilitator leadership model to mentor survivors in our pioneer support groups to take the lead in the campaign against acid attack violence in Uganda.
