Our strategic plan is comprised of a unique, interrelated and interdependent cohort of themes all geared towards sustainable livelihoods of youth in Uganda. Our work is coined around social entrepreneurship, emphasizing the need for a sustainable social value and social good for any entrepreneurial initiative. We work across five significant areas: Community Engagement for Transformation and Peace-Building; Rehabilitation, Reformation and Reintegration of Offenders (RRR); Creation of Employment Opportunities; Skill Building Vulnerable Individuals to Support Workplace Success; Advocacy and Communication for Changed Systems, Policies and Mindsets.
