Sanyu Centre for Arts and Rights (SARI) is an organization that empowers young people through Creative ARTs and Tech for positive results in incomes, education, health and prevention of violence in Uganda. Our passion is driven by the need to address gender-fueled injustices and power imbalances affecting young people, especially girls and young women in our communities. We address limited access to resources of production, limited opportunities to education, unemployment, limited health rights and services and vulnerability to violence. SARI wants to see young people transformed in their livelihoods and are able to actively participate and contribute meaningfully to society. SARI uses Arts, Artivism, tech, digital platforms and media as tools for empowering young people, especially girls and young women to be transformed economically and socially.
