My story is not different from thousands and millions of other young people in Uganda. Growing up in and around under privileged communities in Uganda known as Ghettos and making it to University while seeing fellow youth struggling with bad behavior culminating from peer to peer influence, violence, drug abuse and illiteracy.
It was very vital for me as a lucky graduate to try and help the underprivileged fellow youths from our communities earn decent livelihoods.
It is very heart breaking to see the people you grew up with, suffering as young single mothers, others dying at a tender age due to violence, many youths suffering from mental retardation due to drugs and narcotics, others rotting in prisons due to immoral behaviors, prostitution and many other challenges.
Having been blessed with the gift of university education, I, with other straight thinking young men and women were motivated to create the much desired positive change in our country hence forming The Youth Hub Uganda.
