Youth Petition To the President Of the Republic Of Uganda On YLP.
Staff of Youth Advocacy Foundation Uganda-YAFU visited all the Seven Districts of Karamoja Sub region, Napak, Moroto, Nakapipirit, Amudat, Abim, Kotido and Kabong to assess youth engagement in livelihood and poverty reduction!. We left Kampala on 16th April 2016 and traveled back to Kampala on 27th April 2016, for the two weeks we have been in Karamoja, there is relative peace and security stability! Said Executed Director. Mr. Akampa There are very many un-exploited opportunities! Most youth are now gathering in towns idle, which could also be a huge challenge to this peace that is already being experienced! Not only did we physically interact with youth here, we even did a live radio interactive programme with youth courtesy of NENAH FM!. There is urgent need to holistically engage youth in social, economic transformation of this area. A peer to peer approach is the way to go so as to improve on livelihoods and fight extreme poverty which can be seen all over this rich( rich in Minerals and tourist attraction) Sub region that boarders Southern Sudan and Kenya. We therefore appeal for partners and collaborators to support our interventions of improving youth livelihoods in Karamoja Sub region. We will be grateful to work with you.
