About JA Uganda

Junior Achievement (JA) is one of the largest global NGOs dedicated to addressing young people’s fundamental social and economic challenges by educating and empowering them to transform their future and own their economic success.

Through the delivery of cutting-edge, experiential learning in financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship, we effectively broaden the canvas of possibility for young people and enrich their ability to both engage in their own economic development and contribute to the strength of their families, communities, and economies.

Junior Achievement Uganda (JA) is a non-profit organization established in 2008 as a member nation of JA Worldwide, operating mainly in schools and, for the last 3 years, involving out-of-school youth impacting over 130000 learners with the JA flagship program—the JA Company Program to date.
