Iganga Youth Day

Connect, Have Fun, Learn, Support Our Community!

Every year in August, we join hands with our community, fellow youths and local leaders to celebrate the International Youth Day. We use this day to come together as young people, share ideas, forge relationships with organizations and leaders as we find ways to eradicate poverty and minimize unemployment among youths.

This is not only a celebration, but also an annual exhibition to inspire, guide and connect youths to opportunities. For 3 years, we have built a platform for company executives, local leader and young people to come and give inspirational and awakening talks about unemployment, peace, human rights, gender equality, community development and entrepreneurship.

Value to the youth

Every year, over 500 youths; in school, recent graduates, and young entrepreneurs attend our event. Also, a number of organisations and companies join us to interact with young people, giving them the opportunity to present themselves, talk face-to-face, and leave a lasting impression.

This is a great opportunity for the youths to know more about what these companies do; for example, what kind of opportunities they offer to graduates, graduate jobs the company will offer in future, selection process and company demands. It’s also a great networking opportunity among the youths themselves and a great facilitation tool to future collaboration!

Value to businesses

Iganga Youth Day provides a platform to companies and small businesses to present products that can be useful to the youths and advise them on how they can use these products to generate income or live a better life.

The event also provides a perfect networking platform with other companies/businesses/entrepreneurs and can directly work as recruitment and the new employee market place. Companies and organizations get the opportunity to connect directly with the youths during the event.

Support the community

For every commemoration, we have always carried out community service and activities. For the past 3 years, we have engaged over 500 youths; fundraising to donate to Iganga Hospital’s Paediatric Ward, Town cleaning and offering training and inspiration to hundreds of young people every year!
