SLOGBAA - Creating structures for rural youth leaders' mobilization, capacitating, and mentoring for more effective execution of their policy making and development roles.
We aim is to pilot and develop a grassroots-based structure for mobilization, capacitating, and mentoring of youth leaders at the lower local government level in Uganda. Specific objectives include:
- To mobilizing and capacitate youth and CSOs leaders to be better fitted to carry out their roles in local governance representation and policymaking.
- 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.
- 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.
The project takes place in Yumbe and Mayuge districts in West Nile and Eastern regions in Uganda.
