NEMACY-Uganda is committed to see a society that respects the rights of young people and support them to achieve their full potential. Under her programme area of Youth livelihood support and provision of family support and economic empowerment, NEMACY-Uganda with support from the Australian Government has conducted capacity building of young mothers of Buwenge sub -county and Buwenge Town Council in the area of menstrual health education and management. The young mothers are trained in making re-useable sanitary pads and also marketing them.
This strategy aims at empowering young people with skills which will help them to survive in their day to day life. Also giving them knowledge on how to protect their lives healthy as well as have sustainable livelihoods. Recently the trained young mothers went ahead to form a group called ”Buwenge Young Mothers Association” (BYMA) which NEMACY-UGANDA is helping them to register as a CBO. The aim is to use the knowledge they have acquired to empower, inspire other young mothers to be responsible, hardworking and income secure.
NEMACY-Uganda calls everybody to get involved in supporting young people in whatever little you can and this will enable them to achieve their dreams. The world will have better forests if the young trees are weeded and pruned well. The same should be applied to the young generation for them to have a bright future.
