WHY ?

BECAUSE IN UGANDA THERE IS NO CIRCUS AND BESIDES SOME CHALLENGES THE PEARL OF AFRICA HAS POSITIVE ASPECTS:

    • It is not a big country
    • It has good security in all areas
    • There are basic infrastructures and services
    • Good political stability
    • There are many organizations working on behalf of children and youth
WHY KAMPALA?
    • It is Uganda’s capital city
    • There are many children and schools
    • There are many organizations working on behalf of children and youth
    • It is the headquarter for governmental bodies, embassies  and international organizations
    • Many roads converge and depart
    • There are basic infrastructures and services
    • It is possible to select qualified staff

BECAUSE ITS POPULATION IS YOUNGER…

We have identified Uganda as having enormous potential to benefit from HCU, because its population is younger that of any other place on earth with 52% of its inhabitants – about 22 millions – below 15 years of age and there is a great need to address relevant crosscutting social information to children, youth and communities and HCU is an effective tool in accomplishing this mission.

Outdated school syllabi with lack of extra curricula activities/information and publicized positive behavior models addressed to the society adversely impact the ambitions of youth and communities with serious negative implications for people’s everyday life, health, environment protection, rights, school dropout, social skills development, education opportunities, work and Uganda future at large.

The youth, living in slums, remain one of the least understood, vulnerable and difficult groups to be reach even if various organizations, who works into these realities, have made some improvements in addressing few basic needs and services. But the complexity of those needs, the very high number of youth – 80% of them unemployed – coupled with the lack of essential facilities and incentives, makes the transition to an independent and healthy living difficult to achieve for the majority of them.
