I love the fact that dumping sites were transformed with children in mind. I am also particularly impressed by the youth who took part.
It is so awesome when people work together to improve their communities.
The fact that you have seen it work makes it even easier to replicate the idea.

I wish you the best.

Thanks Idob Nazus, that was very detailed and brings up helpful pointers that we intend to focus on in order for this idea to work.
It is true that Uganda's current system is wanting and I am excited to see children develop skills from a young age. This idea could be the start of something great, which can be replicated.
A good foundation shall certainly play a big role in shaping the children's lives.

Charlotte I agree. Several children in Uganda have to grow up in poverty and are not availed an opportunity for 'plan B.'
It would be great to bring this idea to life and give them an opportunity to change their story.
