Who we are
Assisi Centre for Social Justice and Peace is a social change Not-for-profit Organisation working at the intersection of Gender Justice, Social Inclusion and Non-Violent Resolution of Conflicts in Ugandan Schools and Communities.
Premised on the belief that investing in every child’s education can be our world’s smartest investment, Assisi Centre for Social Justice and Peace (ACESJP) exists to create a world free from illiteracy, exclusion, violence, and gender inequality.
We envision a world where social justice, human rights, and equitable power relations between all humanity are recognized as factors for sustainable peace and development.
To create a just, fairer and peaceful Uganda society for all.
