Why the youth?
The youth stage of a human being is a foundation for a future ahead. However, a weak foundation has lower chances of guaranteeing a successful future and the opposite side of the statement is a reality. Besides, over 75% of Uganda’s population are youth, implying that investing in the youth is synonymous to securing a national insurance policy.
