End Acid Violence Uganda

EAV was founded by Ernest Kayanja and Ali Mubiru, journalists at Radio Simba in Uganda. As journalists and human rights activists, Ernest and Ali know the power of story and media to draw attention to atrocities that are overlooked.  As volunteers and concerned citizens, they have worked hard to ensure that people in their country- and all of us- pay attention and take action to ending acid violence.
