Our Belief

The Youth Group strongly believes that young people deserve to be heard and that they need their own structures and channels to voice their concerns. We support our members to become more relevant, stronger as well as better equipped to sustain that role. We also actively participate in the projects of nature rehabilitation, sanitation programs, especially in Koreng parish, and in the villages most affected by the economic crisis. We work in villages of Kamailuk and Koreng in Koreng parish, Malera sub-county, of Bukedea district. We want this youth organization to contribute more and better to nature rehabilitation, youth mobilization, agricultural projects and and community development through teamwork and capacity building. We advocate for the recognition of the impact of youth work and volunteering in society. Its implementation should be the frame for new Youth groups across Uganda.
