Wise Choices for Life is a ministry set up to empower vulnerable Ugandan men and women in the child bearing age group with the knowledge and skills to break the poverty cycle. Targeting young adults first, the training in reproductive health challenges the world view of many that large families produce strength. Replacing this with children by choice not chance.
Uganda has one of the highest fertility rates in Africa. Cultural myths and traditions as well as poor knowledge in reproductive health drives the poverty cycle. The high abortion rate, gender inequality, high maternal mortality rate and excessive number of orphans and abandoned babies are just some of the tragic results of a high fertility rate.

Wise Choices for Life works to combat this by training Ugandan people to challenge and train the Ugandan youth in:
- a holistic approach to reproductive health
- challenging the world view on sexuality
- how to take personal responsibility for themselves and their children
