CATALYSING YOUTH INDUSTRIOUSNESS AND CIVIC ENGAGEMENT
We equip the youth with skills that enable them unleash their potential and contribute to the development of their communities. We have thus tapped into youth industriousness for employability and self-employment as a means of breaking the poverty cycle.
Nnabagereka Development Foundation helps youth in Uganda and in other parts of the world achieve their potential and contribute to their homes, community and country.
We educate them about their rights and responsibilities as citizens and allowing them to develop skill sets that are valuable to them as they undergo the transition to adulthood. We also strive to tap into youth industriousness for employability and self-employment as a means of breaking the cycle of poverty.
The two core projects we run under this programme are:
- Triggering Youth Industriousness
- Youth Civic Engagement
1. Triggering Youth Industriousness
Over the last 13 years, We have mentored over 12,000 children and youth under its Ekisaakaate kya Nnabagereka. Against this backdrop, we have tapped into youth industriousness for employability and self-employment as a means of breaking the poverty cycle. We train and mentor youths, and in some instances provide seed capital to trigger their industriousness focusing on the cottage, ICT, agriculture and agro-processing industries
2. Youth Civic Engagement
The Kiganda culture bestows different strains of leadership both of the private and public variety, thus we engage with the youth and equip them with the skills for critical thinking, effective communication and Obuntubulamu. Youth are then assigned to a mentor who helps to hone these skills.
160 Youths & 24
With support from the Ford Foundation, the Nnabagereka Development Foundation has trained and mentored 160 youth in leadership, civic engagement and networking. Twenty Four (24) clan and county chiefs have been trained in mentoring young people.
NDF is directly involved in the community with its unique activities.
