First and foremost; PEMU is a non-government organization registered with National Organization Board under Ministry of Internal Affairs under the registration Number S.5914/13417. The organization is operating in the Eastern region of Uganda in five districts, that is, Mayuge in Wairasa, Malongo Sub-County, Kamuli in Njeru town council, Jinja in Budondo and Mafubira Sub-Counties, Bugiri in Nankoma and Kapyanga Sub-counties and Iganga in Nakalama and Nambale Sub-Counties.
The headquarters are located in Magamaga Mayuge District and it is the co-ordinating office of all these branches. The formation of PEMU was due to the overwhelming problems that the founders were experiencing which continuously reminded them of their own background.
Throughout the past two years of its operation as a registered NGO, the organization has been facing challenges of the need to scale up with limited resources and also to adopt a multi-sectorial approach that caters for education, psycho-social support care and overall well-being of VWGCs and their care takers.
HIV/AIDS is a scourge affecting society as a whole. Hence the society as a whole must respond to its onslaught. This calls for an integrated approach, which works alongside the three dimensions above.
Therefore PEMU has decided to come up with a four year strategic plan of intervention that will guide the implementers to address the women and vulnerable girl children in an efficient and effective manner possible and in compliance with the National Strategic Programme Plan for Intervention (NSPPI) and other policies and programs in the country.
