Mirembe Community College (MCC) located in Kampala, Uganda is a private vocational institution which offers vocational education courses for self reliance. The students are youths, 75% of who are young mothers that have had babies as teenagers. The desperate youths have resorted to risky behaviors and disgraceful lifestyles as a means of generating income to cater for their children and their own needs. The College engages an approach that combines psycho-social support and livelihood skills transfer to reduce the economic vulnerability of girls and young women.

MCC was founded in 1996 by Florence Kaluuba and she is assisted by a group of counselors and teachers to address the causes and consequences of dropping out of school among adolescent girls and identifying solutions to this phenomenon.  MCC release young women from despair into a life of dignity and purpose.
