Sironko Woman MP Florence Nambozo Mayoga has urged youths to capitalise on government programs in improving their livelihoods.
Nambozo says Uganda has the youngest population in the world adding that youths should be helped to be productive. She explains that youths need to be productive to be worthy in their communities.
According to Nambozo, youth need to exploit income opportunities in the agricultural sector urging them to organize themselves in groups in order to benefit in government programs like Youth livelihood Program and the current SACCO project.
Her message comes at the time when Uganda is joining the rest of the world in celebrating youth day 2019 with national celebration taking place in Jinja under the theme “transforming education”
Nambozo explains that this year’s theme gives an opportunity to all state parties to evaluate the various policies, programmes and strategic interventions aimed at empowering young people”.
