WHY WE ARE HERE
Having been raised by a single mother, Ssekitto kalule Emmanuel didn’t experience the blessing of having a father as a mentor and for that at an early age of 9 years, he started the struggle of finding a proper role, a mentor who could empower him. This was a very tough process to surpass at an early age. At 16 years of age, he started creating time over the weekends to reach out to other young people in different communities especially in the ghettos to share with them what he had learnt and empower them since majority of them could not endure and cope with what he had experienced. During this period he realised the need to reach out to more youths in a mores way therefore in 2016, he founded Faces Up Uganda.
Faces Up Uganda, a youth led non-profit organisation that is empowering young people through creative arts and mentorship. The team is comprised of a multi-talented and dynamic youths with a passion to create a platform where other young people can be mentored and inspired by proper role models as a way to help them realise their full potential. The team extends a loving arm to the oppressed and vulnerable young people throughout the different communities in Uganda regardless of their gender, religion, tribe so as to create an inclusive society where everyone can achieve their dreams and goals.
Inspire young people to do what inspires them.
