Girlsport
Youth Sport Uganda Runs Many Programs Specifically for Girls with an Aim to Get Them More Active and Engaged. Like All Ysu Programs, Girlsport is More Than Just Sport, It is Also Education, Empowerment and Teamwork. Ensuring That Girls Experience Needed Basic Education is a Priority for Youth Sport Uganda, and Through Girlsport, Education is Given in a Non-formal, Relaxed Setting. Girls in Uganda Do Not Have the Same Opportunities for Social Interaction That Boys Have, and Girlsport Allows Girls to Make Friends and See Their Own Potential to Pursue Greater Equality.

Equipment Distribution
This Program Aims at Removing Financial Barriers for Kids to Play Competitive Sport. Ysu Receives New and Old Sports Equipments from Friends and Well-wishers, then Distributes Them Freely to the Kids Who Want to Play Sport but Cannot Afford.
