Writing our World aims to create an environment in which young people aged between 8 - 25 years gain skills enabling them to think critically and analyse issues so that they can actively participate in their communities. This is done through specially designed programmes, support and mentorship and encouraging the use of writing, debating and the spoken word when tackling community needs.
Writing our World has been able to inspire several young people to focus on solving their community needs by exploiting their natural talents.
It has started a discussion on various platforms on how the arts can be used in social change.
Writing Our World is also currently carrying out a project titled “Young Writers for Peace”, which brings together a select group of young writers in Uganda to document the stories of local peacebuilders in creative arts forms.
The organisation also organises an East African Debate League, which brings together secondary school students in the five countries to debate and foster regional cooperation and unity. This is in conjunction with Writing our World's partnerships in Kenya, Tanzania, Burundi and Rwanda.
