Our story

Sanyu Centre for Arts and Rights (SARI) is a creative and cultural organisation that empowers young people in creative Arts and digital skills for better incomes, health, education 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 creative and cultural Arts, Art-ivism, digital tools, media and community spaces to empower young people, especially girls and young women to be transformed economically and socially. SARI was founded in 2019 and registered Non-Government Organization (INDR155244621NB), Company limited by guarantee (80020002881796) and  Community Based Organisation (W.CBO/2D/6499).
