Dear Rehmah,

Thank you for your thoughtful insights. This is a great initiative which should take off soon. I like the idea that through the project, the youth will balance between academic work and the life skills. In Uganda, parents are always worried about taking away their children focus to academics. Balancing these two takes away this fear.

The initiative also addresses the holistic approach to programming. Having the buy in of the teachers, parents and local leaders is something that should be encouraged for all programming in Uganda.

I am glad that this is an Initiative starting in Uganda soon. Keep it up Rehmah

Dear Rehmah,

Thank you for your thoughtful insights. Going through my youthful years as a leader and spending much of those years in the Ugandan capital Kampala, i had several questions in regards to youth unemployment. In your project you tackle the real issues. This project is a mind-bender.

My understanding of this project is that the skills development and change of mindset component introduced by CEDA International is intended to cause a paradigm shift in the attitudes of the youth so that they can appreciate their roles and effectively participate in the development of their country.

I like the fact that the focus is giving attention and investment in
skills development for target groups beyond the realm of formal
education and offering those critical skills of goal setting and life skills.

Great ideas Rehmah. Let us all support this project.
