Why ?

BECAUSE UGANDA POPULATION IS YOUNGER…

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

Outdated school syllabi with lack of extra curricula activities/information and publicized positive behavior models addressed to the society adversely impact the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. We have identified Uganda as having great 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.

Because 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. But the complexity of those needs, the 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.
