About us


Global Learning for Sustainability

GLS is a girls’ and young women ,  youth-led Organization founded in 2015   to respond to the growing number of youth whose inability to develop life skills is the major cause of challenges they face. At the height of poor life skills youth cannot address their challenges, some, beyond their control-and yet others are directly under their control.  GLS later reviewed its strategy to   address sustainable challenges  aligned to SDGs 4,5 & 13.

GLS  is  registered with Uganda N.G.O service bureau as a local N.G.O with a charity status .
