We aim to build a lot in which all girls have the opportunity to reach significant heights.

Description

FORMATION OF CASEY FOUNDATION
The organization was founded and incorporated in 2020 following a story that aired on NBS TV, a local television station, on 6th June 2020 in Lwanda village, Luuka district in Eastern Uganda, where a 13-year-old pupil of primary five got pregnant and in her narration said," the man bought me a bottle of soda, a cake, gave me 2000 UGX (less than 1 USD) and promised to buy me a dress. I had sex with him, I conceived, and now thinking of abortion, but life is hard." This formed Casey Formation.
