About Us


Youth For Africa was started in 2017 as Uganda Youth Entrepreneurship Program (UYEP) whose primary purpose was to seek for solutions of the problems affecting youth in Uganda with the limited resources in their communities. Furthermore, youth where trained on different skills which included Book making, among others. During this period, unemployment was the major problem affecting the youth.
Due to insufficient funds and failure of the program to pickup given limited support, it came to a standstill in 2018 and 2019, we sought it wise to resume the program given the hardships youth around Africa are experiencing.
Over the years, the narrative of Unemployment has continued, and as Youth for Africa (Y4Africa), in a quest to eradicate poverty among fellow youth, we have redesigned the program to suit the changing trends of employment which include skills development i.e. vocational training among others.
This program is aimed at empowering and developing the skills of youth so as to become self-sustainable in their communities, and further more task them to learn new skills as well as becoming innovative over time.
The target group is the marginalized group of youth as well as fresh graduates and Undergraduate university students seeking to expand their careers in other skills related fields.  

Youth for Africa  aims at refocusing the minds and ideologies of young people towards finding solutions to the existing problems within their societies, and by so doing, the youth are able to rediscover their potentials in regards to what they visualize their society to be like. We do this by giving the young people a platform to express themselves and air out their opinions with matters that regards to their development and development of their societies. In line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), we hope to perform checks on whether the young people are living up to the goals of the United Nations, and solve problems around communities with the above goals.
We believe that through the use of the little available resources we have within our societies, we can champion local innovation and develop new technology to solve problems currently faced by young people.
With Entrepreneurship at the frontline, we hope to champion empowerment among youth in Africa and change the narrative of white collar to blue collar skills development. We also aspire to be the champions in creating awareness among young people through our programs that are geared at developing and building the capacity of young people within Africa. 



    In a quest to eradicate poverty among fellow youth, we have redesigned the program to soot the changing trends of employment which include skills development i.e. vocational training among others.

     International Youth Day 2020

    As youth for Africa, we managed to organize the Teenage Pregnancy Campaign that saw many Youth in Africa come out to speak against teenage pregnancy in their various countries. We did not do this alone, we managed to involve a couple of Youth led organizations across Africa and partnered with them as we stood together in solidarity to speak out against teenage pregnancy. This campaign showed that there is need for need for more awareness about teenage pregnancy to members of the communities. The intervention of local leaders and authorities when it comes to addressing matters regards to teenage pregnancy was very poor.
