Iganga Youth Day 2019 (Color, Share and Connect)
Every year in August, through Iganga Youth Day, Hangout Foundation joins hands with communities, fellow youths and local leaders to celebrate the International Youth Day.
Hangout Foundation helps young people who are struggling to find relevant information that can help them launch business ventures, support their communities and become active citizens empowered to innovate and create a sustainable bright future.
Hangout Foundation and Hire the Youth are partnering with singer Grace Nakimera’s Feed The Streets Foundation that is on a mission to reduce homelessness one step at a time.
Iganga Youth Day
Iganga Youth Day is an interactive experiential day where young people come together, share ideas, forge relationships with organizations and leaders as we find ways to eradicate poverty and minimize unemployment among youths.
The event also provides a good networking platform for young people and the community through games (face painting, color fun run, among others) poetry, a bonfire, music, dance, drama, and sports.
This year as we celebrate the International Youth Day in Uganda, we are standing together to support a group of 50 teenage mothers. Through their group, they support and empower each other to attain vocational skills in tailoring. However, in the process, they have inadequate tailoring materials, a limited working space, and only two faulty tailoring machines.
These hardships have not only cut their only source of income but also cut short their ability to purchase foodstuffs and other basic needs. They all have children below the ages of five with no form of training, support or business to keep the families fed.
It’s from these circumstances, that we seek your urgent support towards this noble cause by fundraising 50 tailoring machines to improve their efficiency and to reach out to more mothers. Each machine with starter materials costs UGX: 400,000 = $109.
