In Uganda, the need for proper mentorship especially amongst the youth is so critical but yet not being given the attention it deserves. This can be witnessed by the neglect of young people who are being brain washed through "media mentorship" where they access any kind of content via different media platforms, which is greatly influencing the youth to base their actions upon them. This therefore has birthed numerous social upheavals that threaten lives of the youths such as drug and substance abuse, child prostitution, early marriages, suicide, depression and above all has also exposed young people to threats of being recruited into violent extremism activities hence further threatening peace and stability. Through our different programs, we seek to build capacity for young people through creative arts mentorship and also linking them to proper role models who can guide and support them in order to reach their full potentials.
