Justice Connect is a youth-led non-profit organisation that creates innovative ICT Solutions aimed at creating peace, justice, good governance, equality, accountability, better access to information , and economic empowerment among the rural and disadvantaged communities. The organisation was founded in 2016 with the hope of creating a sustainable development through youth inclusion and empowerment. The Organisation uses ICT as a catalyst in youth engagement and inclusion in all her activities. The Organisation is at its tender age but it is already recording tremendous recommendations and recognition both locally and internationally. The vision of the organisation is to create a more enabling environment for the millennials to cause the change they desire for their communities and the future ahead of them.  The organisation is firmly built on the two concepts of :- “Nothing For Us Without Us” and “STEM”. The organisation was founded by Denis Ogwang, a survivor of the LRA war in Northern Uganda. Ogwang came from a poor family that could afford to relocate from their village to the urban center that was a little bit secure at the peak of  the LRA insurgencies in Northern Uganda and so the family moved into Ader IDP Camp, Otwal, Oyam District where he was raised and got his formal education while living in the refugee camp. His dream has been to use his talent and inspiration to cause the youth to become the change agents and peace makers in their communities and also givers and not takers.  Justice Connect  as the name suggests, is aimed at connecting people to justice.
