Being invited to facilitate a 2 day strategy workshop in Iganga for +256 Youth Platform was a true privilege for us. This is an organization who have very little in a country where 83% of the youth are unemployed! Yes 83%! Not a typo! There are just no jobs and social entrepreuners are needed to help them develop real skills and ideas and systems in order that they have a future. The teaching methods in many schools for many decades was to punish children severely so that they do not even dare to ask questions. This has brought about a generation that is often afraid of taking risks, challenging the status quo and who lack self esteem.
Big challenges for a nation that is at a crossroads but has an amazing opportunity to live upto it’s name as The Pearl of Africa if moves in the right direction.
