    Youth skilling organization Uganda joins the global giving Tuesday movement

    As a global giving movement that has been built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses, communities and countries around the world. This year 2018, GivingTuesday falls on November 28th.

    Giving Tuesday harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partners to transform how people think about, talk about, and participate in the giving season. It inspires people to take collective action to improve their communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they believe in, and help create a better world. Giving Tuesday demonstrates how every act of generosity counts, and that they mean even more when we give together.

    Youth Skilling Organization Uganda has joined GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage to celebrate generosity worldwide!

    More than 2,000 Kilograms of Learning materials, farm equipments and others supplies are need to be supplied out for each partner shool and a our young farmers groups. YSOU has joined the GivingTuesday movement for the second year because we believe the global movement is very powerful. We believe that sharing our talents with others is the most fulfilling way to use them.

    The movement allows us to share our story with others and encourage the spirit of giving to grow greater than ever before. This GivingTuesday, our goal is to fund learning materials like books, pens, shoes, clothes for Kingdom Junior School Kigoggwa and computers for our sponsored IT students in secondary schools for our 'Teaching and education' program.

    Wasswa Samuel the Chief Operations Manager at Youth Skilling Organization Uganda says;

    'We want to transform lives in under-served communities!, and this Giving Tuesday movement will allow us to share this goal beyond our immediate borders and encourage others to join our mission. GivingTuesday, we are encouraged by the early response from partners eager to continue making an impact in this global conversation'

    This will cost $3,000 one of the largest expenses we have for each program. Being a part of the Giving Tuesday community also provides the opportunity to share the Youth Skilling Organization Uganda's story with a wider audience to gain followers while at the same time generating support for our upcoming youth and community development programs to Uganda where we will continue replacing joints to change the lives not only for the youth, but for their families and communities as well.

    Youth Skilling Organization Uganda has continued to receive financial, material and technical support from international and local sources. During this implementation year under review, many of YSOUs financial resources consisted of international donations from individuals and institutions in the USA and UK. Thanks go to our past international volunteers and our partner the WORLD YOUTH ORGANIZATION for their continued commitment regarding international fundraising for YSOU. It's from this background that we kindly count on your engagement support this GIVING TUESDAY!

    YOUTH SKILLING ORGANIZATION UGANDA's PATHWAY TO ELEVATING FARMERS' INCOMES

    Here at Youth Skilling Organization Uganda, a charity dedicated to empowering Ugandan young people through various programs and small scale farmers grow their incomes while managing the natural resources sustainably, we strongly believe that Uganda is the same. So many critics of aid harbour and project perceptions of Uganda that show sources of uncertainty like conflict, political unrest, climate variability and fluctuating markets. These are often the very people who believe that aid doesnt work!

    Its true that agriculture, investment, and protection of vital natural resources in many parts of Uganda can sometimes be complex - and unpredictable. But after 5 years of working in several parts of Uganda, with rural communities and youth in critical locations, we are confident that we have found many elements of the winning strategy for transforming lives.

    We know how to combine both traditional and modern approaches to build farmers knowledge and capabilities. Having under gone intensive training in commercial beans, irish potato growing and harvesting techniques via our demonstration farms and various training sessions, the yields of bean and irish potato farmers we worked with in Busuuju sub-county of Mityana district multiplied over a period of three years and their incomes rose to 90% generally.

    Knowing that empowering women can really bring about prosperity. Our campaign in the Mpigi District Kalagala village where we gave livestock to women, helped them access credit through Village Savings and Loans Associations, we also raised awareness of womens legal rights, led to increases in both womens abilities to generate income and savings, and their decision making powers.

    More importantly, were learning more and more about how we can help small agribusinesses to overcome some key market challenges and unlock exciting opportunities, bringing more markets to farmers.

    Its not very hard. Our first annual progress report, which includes detailed case studies on various ventures, outlines how YSOUs investment in sustainable agricultural development is harvesting dividends for rural communities. That's proof that aid really works.

    We at Youth Skilling Organization Uganda believe that eventually Uganda can evolve from aid, and this is the right kind of investment that can really unlock its true initiative. We are committed to projecting an image of Uganda that is positive, progressive, and has the capacity for transformational change and we hope that our new impact report goes some way to dispelling the myths of hanger and poverty being someone else's problem.

    With the right kind of support, attention to protection of the natural resources, and investment that can really reach out and touch peoples lives for the better, we are confident that the UNs Sustainable Development Goals can be delivered in some of the most critical locations Uganda.
