Nominated by Heart to Heart Initiative

All 2022 Children’s Peace Prize Nominees

Agape has seen many children struggle in the Kagoma community, especially young women who were unaware about menstrual hygiene. Agape took it upon herself to introduce a class about menstruation health for young girls aged between 8 to 18 years of age. It involved making reusable sanitary pads, teaching girls about personal health and sanitation and encouraging young girls to be safe.  Agape has been a volunteer at the organisation Heart to Heart since the young age of 9 years old.  In collaboration with the organisation Agape has gone to multiple schools in her community to educate youth about children’s rights and child protection. Agape dreams of a safe environment for all girls free from all forms of discrimination and abuse. She plans to build a rescue Centre for all vulnerable girls in Uganda. A support place where they can be encouraged, rehabilitated, counselled, trained, and fully empowered to live a fulfilled life.
