Engaging Youth in Kampala’s Poorest Areas

Engaging Youth in Kampala’s Poorest Areas is an AFFCAD project that seeks to provide between 600-800 male and female young disadvantaged Ugandans aged 16 – 25 years living in Bwaise, Kalerwe and other poorest parts of Kampala. 

Started in August 2013, the one year project runs Bwaise Youth Employment Center (BYEC) which is to provide appropriate tools for employment, develop career information and skills necessary for their professional development, including developing a supportive network, finding suitable role models, and creating platforms through which constructive dialogue will take place to prevent the rise of violent extremist ideology in this vulnerable population.
