According to UNICEF, 1 out of 4 Ugandan children live in extreme poverty, many of which cannot afford to go to school. Without education their lives are constrained by a recurring cycle of poverty and unemployment with few, if any, opportunities to break the cycle.
We want to change that. Young adults in Uganda struggle to find employment. In fact, the unemployment rate for young adults (18-30 years of age) is around 64 percent according to the Uganda Bureau of Statistics. Given the growing population – three quarters below the age of 30 – a focus on job creation is paramount.
We want to help create jobs.
