I am passionate about

Actions

In Ugandan Camp of Rhino, having served as a Refugee Welfare Council i and Youth Representative at Global Refugee Youth Consultations, i managed to represent Youth Voices by creating networks and structures which provide safe spaces for Refugee Youth including Refugee Innovation Center, Rhino Camp Youth Council and through the Youth Social Advocacy Team, the youth led initiative i founded in 2015, we managed to control and resolved tribal clashes between youth of various ethnicity fueled by the ongoing conflict in my country. Through our innovation, mentor ship and life skills training, we supported 5 Youth groups (150 people) with start up funds to run their enterprises. We trained over 150 Peace Ambassadors who actively formed 5 Community Based Organisations advocating for peace in the settlement. We trained Refugee Leaders, Women, Youth and Church leaders (250 people) as Mediators, Counselors on Trauma Healing, Leadership and conflict Resolution skills. My goal is to see a World where Youth are seen as practical tools for sustainable development, meaningfully engaged to be agents of peace, successful entrepreneurs and useful global citizens for a Peaceful World
