Our Values

More About Us?
Tuzungumzie is a Swahili word that means ‘let us speak together”.

Tuzungumzie Africa is a Non-profit youth organization that seeks to put the youth at the centre in the promotion of SDGs in Africa with special focus on SDG 4 Quality Education, SDG 5 Gender Equality, SDG 6 Clean Water and Sanitation, SDG 8 Decent Work and Economic Growth , SDG 13 Climate Change , SDG 16 Peace Justice and Strong institutions.

Tuzungumzie Africa started as a student debate club at Makerere University where students gathered to debate various issues and events in the country (Uganda) and mobilizing money for students with tuition arrears to enable them sit for examinations and soon there was a realization that Universities harbour a critical youth population that could do much to light candles of youth across Africa.

While we organise traditional seminars, conferences, dialogues, at the heart of the organization is the spirit of debate, subjecting challenges of the youth to critical thought and refinement. We subject the issues to research, debate among university students, group of critical youth in the policy think tank. And therefrom, we generate solution proposals. Classified into possible projects and policy proposals. The projects are rolled out in the community while policy proposals are pursued to the legislative and implementation bodies until they take effect. This is guided by practicability and sustainability

The focus is improving the quality of life through working with institutions at International, continental, National and community level to reform systems and promotion of best practices for ease of access and development of programs that can work for Africa.
