Mayuge RISE Youth Soccer league
Mayuge RISE Youth Soccer league, which was previously known as RISE soccer league is a recently relaunched 5-month football weekend event comprising of eight (8) youth soccer teams, each with at least 30 players/members. The league is thus home to 240 players plus at least 500 spectators every weekend, engaging at least 2800 youths and members of their communities per month. The league has set out five immediate objectives including: To provide a set of accessible leisure sports activities for youths during their free time. To draw young people away from destructive behavior towards a more engaging peer-run alternative. To promote the talents of young people within the sports field. To provide space for coming together, building common linkages, and networking. The league acts as a mobilization space for talking about community development and issues youths face.
Foresee, Observe & Combat
According to the data provided by the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2016 around 36.7 million people were living with a contagious illness where most of the subjects of this illness are between the ages of 25 and 29. Due to a lack of awareness of the European youth, they are uninterested about undergoing the necessary tests. This situation puts both their personal and societies collective health in danger which is the reason why our project is needed to increase consciousness about the possible outcomes of this neglect. The main aim of the program is to widen the perception of youth in the case of infectious diseases. Throughout the project, participants will be informed on the topics of protection from illnesses and the procedures that they need to take in case of being infected by one.

Specific objectives include: (1). To mobilizing and capacitate youth and CSOs leaders to be better fitted to carry out their roles in local governance representation and policymaking. (2). To facilitate more regular popular interfaces between the youth leaders and youths they represent in their local government jurisdictions in form of quarterly round tables and meetings, as a way of systematizing the need for this, increasing their accountability to their constituencies, and providing platforms for policy inputs. (3). Facilitate the development of strong grassroots-based policy inputs, analysis, discussion, commentary, information development, and evidence-based engagements, through initiating a Community Journalists Volunteers (CJV) program.
