I got involved with YIET through a mentoring program organized by the International Trade Centre. Immediately, I was impressed by this grassroots NGO and its leadership’s high level of dedication, organization, and governance. In 2020, about 46.02 percent of Uganda’s total population were aged 0 to 14 years, 52 percent were aged 15 to 64 years and 1.99 percent were 65 years old and older. There is a large youth demographic that needs proper guidance and support to meet basic needs, and that is what YIET is doing to help. YIET’s programs are designed to be socially, economically, and environmentally sustainable. Wishing YIET great success in fundraising and continued execution of its excellent initiatives!

I met Julius through ITC’s YE (Young Entrepreneurs) community. As an advisor, I am also learning from Julius. He has taken on such a huge initiative alongside studying, it is really commendable and his ambition equally infectious. Most entrepreneurs are looking for a financial outcome for their start-up. However, at the heart of YIET is a desire to deliver socio-economic progress, so grown-up for someone so young. YIET empowers people with education, hygiene and leadership skills. Its the later, the leadership, that will ensure that this legacy that Julius is creating achieves scale as more people come into the fold. Please support this worthy cause.

I met Julius when participating as a speaker/mentor in the Aiducation Start-Up Academy for young entrepreneurs in Uganda and was impressed by his entrepreneurial spirit, wealth of ideas, drive and determination to give back to his community and change it for the better. Please consider supporting this worthy cause that provides education and support for young Ugandans to achieve economic independence.
