I agree,

OpenIdeo is a great platform.

Looking forward to meeting you.

God bless you

Dear Rehmah,

I am happy to see you using the Human Centered Design in developing this idea. I am sure this will go a long way to ensure desirability, feasibility and viability of the project. It will also play a critical role in the development of sustainable strategies and approaches.

The "Personal Leadership skills Development component "will help to equip the young people with High Order Thinking skills that will definitely be critical in driving the socio-economic developments of the 21st Century.

I am a Professional Agricultural Extension Worker, willing to support you in further designing of the Agricultural training offerings and practically be involved in some of these offerings.

Agency for Development and Empowerment Ltd, an organisation I lead is also working with Hon. Victoria Ssekitoleko, a former Minister of Agriculture in the Ugandan government and former United Nations Food and Agricultural Organization Regional Representative to Eastern and Southern Africa (currently the Executive Director-Speakers Forum) to design a program focusing on promotion of public speaking. I think, this is an area that we can explore further.

The Agency also piloted an initiative called the "National Annual Youth Inventions and Innovations Exhibition" a multi-stakeholder practical and Social Inventions and Innovations driven program that focuses on identification, engagement and promotion of young people in possession of highly practical and creative inventions and innovations that have potential to create employment and networking opportunities. The objective is to provide youth with an avenue to contribute to the National and Region Development Process, create a better sense of ownership and contribute to sustainable development of the region.

It targets individual youth, youth groups and youth based organisations involved in innovation space and Service providers (Government institutions (Ministries responsible for Youth Affairs) & Institutions and Statutory Bodies, Youth Councils, and Supporting Organizations including private sector, policy makers, academic institutions and NGOs, Financial institutions, telecom service providers, religious Institutions, International development partners and Inter-Government)

Since "innovation" is a key component of "Catch Them Young" mentorship program,
we can also explore potential synergies.

Best regards
