Purchase Our Book


We are excited to announce that our book, We Have Something To Say: True Stories From Adolescent Girls Growing Up In The Slums Of Kampala, is published and now officially available on Amazon!

All proceeds from the book go directly to our Adolescent Girls Program.


Our book, We Have Something To Say, began in the summer of 2017, when a conversation between a GUIU volunteer and an adolescent girl sparked the idea for a collection of stories that would give girls a platform to be the voice for all girls around the world who experience poverty and inequality.

The result is a gorgeous compilation of colorful photos accompanying stories from sixteen remarkable girls who are changing the status quo and daring to dream bigger dreams. We Have Something To Say is a celebration of the strength and resiliency of these girls, and of what opportunities open for them when they are given an education, encouragement and mentorship.

Get the book and see for yourself: these girls are amazing; their stories, inspiring; and their images speak volumes. What else is possible for adolescent girls around the world when their stories are shared?
