Janet Aguti

Janet Aguti is a Ugandan social worker and Life-Coach. As one of the first employees of Uganda's first online emergency sex education platform and through managing a project for increased access to Sexual and Reproductive Health in Ugandan refugee camps, Janet has extensive experience in supporting youth overcome personal challenges and traumatic experiences.

As a survivor of sexual abuse herself, she transformed her own difficult experiences into founding a social enterprise called 'Totya Platform', specializing in helping victims of sexual violence to speak about their experiences while receiving emotional care and self-help tools. A mobile platform offers anonymous support via a hotline, while local self-help groups enable users to share experiences and support each other.
