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.
About Iganga Youth Day
With our new partnership with the Hangout foundation, we’ll be expanding the experience to reach more communities and youth in Uganda.
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 day is not only a celebration but also an annual exhibition to inspire, guide and connect youth to opportunities, a perfect fit into our mission.
For 3 years, Iganga Youth Day has transformed into a platform for company executives, local leaders and young people to meet and share inspirational and awakening talks about unemployment, peace, human rights, gender equality, community development, and entrepreneurship.
- Over 500 youth in school, recent graduates, and young entrepreneurs attend our event.
