With majority of Uganda’s population comprising youth, authorities in Kasangati and Nansana have urged that investing in skilling young people, will enable them create solutions for sustainable development goals in the country.
The leaders on Wednesday teamed up with Pastor Robert Kayanja of Rubaga Miracle Centre Catheral to provide entrepreneurial strategies to guide ghetto youths within the city and its suburbs.
They included former kifeesi gang members who are now ambitious and eager to adopt programs that can enable them flourish in the country.
Several of these have in the past months made their way to Churches around Kampala expressing desire to give their lives to Christ so as to turn over a new leaf.
Pastor Robert Kayanja earlier remarked that having children on the streets poses a security threat to the country as these eventually end up in criminal gangs that terrorise the population.
“Ugandans should start taking care of their own people and not wait for donors. It is a shame that we have people that move to offices, work and have a lot of money when their children engage in prostitution and live on streets,” he said.
Mr Ivan Lwanga, an in-charge of a rehabilitation programme of young people from the streets, says many have been allocated responsibilities in churches to help build a sense of confidence and responsibility in them and many are showing positive signs
Activities such as sports, leadership roles and bible study have over the years, according to Lwanga, proved to psychologically influence such people’s behaviour for the better.
