Restless Development (Uganda) is an International NGO established to address the challenges faced by young people in Uganda by placing young people at the forefront of change and development. Our vision is for all Ugandan youth to live healthy and productive lives, fully supported by those around them. Our programming focuses on three core areas: youth sexual and reproductive health and rights, youth civic participation and youth employment and livelihoods.
Restless Development is leading community initiatives that empower young people to adopt safe sexual reproductive behaviours, participate in decision making processes and generate sustainable livelihoods.
