WHY IS IT NEEDED?
With a population growth rate of 3 percent, Uganda has the youngest population in the World with 47.8 percent are below 15 years and 76 percent below 30 years. This has widened the dependence burden thus becoming a major impli- cation to the economic growth of Uganda. As per now, having a youthful popu- lation, manifests itself as a huge constrain to the per capita income in Uganda, as such, we see very many young people being disengaged and disillusioned but yet with proper mentorship, the youthful population can be bide well for future growth of the economy if skills are developed, talents are nurtured and literacy levels struck high.
