The Soroti Based non-governmental Tadooba youth Foundation has equipped at least 32 youth in Soroti City on to hold their leaders accountable in the next coming five years.
Isaac Esaru, the Tadooba Youth Foundation Programs Officer told this website that Uganda is a country with the youngest population on the continent. He said with 60% of the population being below the age of 35 years, capacity building amongst the youth is the only avenue to help them get service delivery.
He said, most of the population falls between the age bracket of 15-30 years and the majority are unemployed with no practical skills to enable them sustain and meet their daily needs of life.
He further told this reporter that the training will also enhance the youth and ask leaders to help them with possible means of fighting unemployment, drug abuse and early marriage practices amongst youth.
The Soroti Western Division LCIII chairperson, Samuel Eyobu asked the youth to be innovative and the elected leaders to be accountable.
He also asked the youth to use proper channels of communication in order to benefit from government programs.
Denis Emeju the newly elected chairperson to coordinate the youth activities at Soroti City west promised to work closely with the youth in order to foster change in the division.
