Uganda Youth Mission Against Poverty(UYMAP)
Impact of your enterprise on sustainable development
We have been able to impact lives of about 10,000 youth since 2009,by teaching them industrial and entrepreneurial skills like the manufacture of soap,candle,paper bags,paint just using simple equipment and they are just doing it from home .
Sustainability and future plans
Well,the project is generating funds from the products manufactured on a small scale like paper bags, liquid soap, candles,volunteer subscription and the training we hold. Each year the project can generate approximately USD 6000 internally. Initially we are operating as a non profit organization though we intend to register it as a company in time to come.
Your profile as an entrepreneur
I was born on the 29th/August/1986 in a small village in Mityana district West of Kampala.Though I grew up from the slums of Kampala with a miserable background that forced me to work hard for myself and for the good of others. Telling my story won me a second prize in an essay contest organized by UNESCO and Goipeace foundationhttps://www.goipeace.or.jp/english/activities/programs/0802/programs-0802_06.html
