Columbia University

Naguru Teenage Information and Health Centre

Makerere University

Columbia University is one of the world's most important centers of research and at the same time a distinctive and distinguished learning environment for undergraduates and graduate students in many scholarly and professional fields.

The University recognizes the importance of its location in New York City and seeks to link its research and teaching to the vast resources of a great metropolis. It seeks to attract a diverse and international faculty and student body, to support research and teaching on global issues, and to create academic relationships with many countries and regions. It expects all areas of the University to advance knowledge and learning at the highest level and to convey the products of its efforts to the world.
Naguru Teenage Information and Health Centre (NTIHC) was founded in 1994 under Kampala City Council. At that time it was located at the Naguru Health Centre IV in Nakawa Division. In 2009 it shifted to Kiswa Heath Centre 

Over time, NTIHC has developed into a fully-formed information and health centre and an organisation with a wider programme on adolescent sexual and reproductive health and rights. In 2014 NTIHC completed a major step in its development by formally registering as an NGO. 


Established in 1922 as a humble technical school, Makerere University is one of the oldest and most prestigious English Universities in Africa. In January of that year, the school, which was later renamed Uganda Technical College, opened its doors to 14 day students who began studying Carpentry, Building and Mechanics.

The University transitioned from the Faculty-based to the collegiate system on 1st July 2011 and as of Friday 30th December 2011, Makerere University officially transformed into a Collegiate University with 9 Constituent Colleges and as at 1st July 2014, 10 Constituent Colleges including the School of Law, all operating as semi-autonomous units of the University.
