Greetings from all of us at Youth With A Vision.
We hope you and your family are safe! We bring to you what we are busy doing towards addressing the needs of less privileged children and youth here in Uganda.
Children education Candidates returned back have returned back for their 3rd academic term. Some of the children under our support have returned back to school to continue with their education.
Some of our non-sponsored children are not yet back to school. And this is so because we are still short of UGX 4,000,000 equivalent to £888 ($1081) to enable all children without sponsors to go back to school before the end of February 2021. Children are expected to sit their promotional/final exams in March 2021. We will appreciate all your support towards raising this amount of money and together we enable less privileged children to access education.
We believe that hope starts with food and food is vital for the proper growth of every child. but in many families of less privileged children, food is always little and sometimes these children can live a day without food.
This makes them malnourished and retards their growth. With your support, we always ensure that children receive meals on a daily basis that is full of important nutrients required for the proper growth of children.
We are laying out strategies to enable families to ensure food security in order to fight hunger in their communities.
Thank you for giving hope
“Nantambi Sharon when my father abandoned us my chances of missing education were high since my mother had no other alternative to get my school fees. I was always sent back for school. my studies were disturbed a lot.
I was forced to sit for 2 years to give my young siblings a chance to go to school too. I was left with little hope for education till when I was enrolled by Youth With A Vision to proceed with education. I receive lunch at skills and they pay for my school fees. my dream is to become a doctor and I am confident that my dream will become true with your support thank you so much Youth With A Vision for your support may God bless you.” Says Nantambi Sharon P. 7 Kyassuma Primary school.
YOUTH EMPOWERMENT - YOUTH FINANCE SCHEME
We are helping youth whose enterprises collapsed during the lockdown to get back on their feet and also helping other new unemployed youth to start up their enterprises to become sustainable
This month we visited Betty Nabisere in Nyendo market and discussed a lot with her how the business is running during this period of the COVID 19.
We found her very busy selling shoes to her customers and she informed us that these months her business isn’t bringing money like it used to do before the pandemic yet her business depends on students in schools but schools are still closed which affected her and her loan payment every month. But she informed us that everything will come back to normal within a few months.
She wants to pay her loan balance before the end of June this year so that the program can benefit other fellow youth also. ''Thank you for supporting us and being patient with us during these hard times of COVID 19''. Says Betty
This is is how your giving hope to the less privileged youth
Before enrolling with Youth With A Vision - Finance Scheme, we had no hope of getting a job because of our low education levels, paying rent, and providing for the basic needs of our family.
When we had of the Youth Finance Scheme we enrolled and completed all the requirements and accessed a loan with which we started Shafic Quality chapatti in November 2020, making chapatti, kikomando, and Rolex to people in and around Nyendo.
Now we are happy that a day we can make two cartons of wheat flour, earn and save money, be able to repay the loan, pay house rent and our workplace, and provide for the basic needs of our family.
We want to save money every day and when our savings add up, we want to expand our business by making more chapatti stalls and add on our business. Our dream is to buy land and construct a house for our mother who stays in a single room and paying school fees for our siblings.
Dear fellow youth we advise you to save money on the small amount you earn every day in order to start up your own enterprise, everything is possible.
Thank you so much for supporting the less privileged youth''. Says Shafic

Sponsor a child
Sponsoring a child is an effective way to provide opportunities for prosperity to all children and communities in need.
When you sponsor a child, you help to provide to him or her the basic necessities, including better nutrition, basic healthcare, education, economic opportunities, access to clean water, and a place to call a home to help them reach their God-given potential.
We need alongside us to facilitate the development of children trapped by poverty in Uganda.
