We provide the most vulnerable young children in the disadvantaged communities in Sudan and Uganda to have positive influence. To achieve this goal, we provide Youth safe space to nurture their physical wellbeing, creativity, communication, and leadership skills. Our core belief is that youth in Sudan and Uganda need good role model as their guidance as they embark on their life journey. Only then will they stay focused in schools to do well academically and in building their capacities towards brighter future.
In Uganda for example, the population is young and plays a dynamic role in the country’s economy, so if nurtured well they will be catalysts in changing their communities. According to the UNFP survey, 34.8% of Ugandan population of 34.6 million are adolescents. Therefore, our activities are centered on meeting the critical needs of this demographic in the disadvantaged communities we serve. We believe that if youth’s energy is channeled towards positive activities, it can prevent them to engage in negative activities within their societies. It’s very important to empower them to think freely and have access to the necessary tools to be force of good in their communities.
