Its an awesome day,
Am a tailor in a society where John Paul and friends run their activities from, amidst my occupation I take a small bunch of chalk because I don't require it in a lump sum. Am pleased to say that John Paul takes an initiative to know when I will need it and goes an extra mile to bring it to my workstation.
All the best john Paul and friends.

Its yet another day to assure the world that there is always better thing when you take time to focus on it. KYV is proving it day by day that it entails the best. For all the activities they have engaged in, they definitely deserve a thumbs up. Because for the chalk production they have made their best to make the best.

Success always come to those who're prepared for it and as well good things. For a few history that I know about you, you've not started this today.
There's a saying of a successful entrepreneur that for anyone to achieve in life, you need to have failed 19 times and succeed on the 20th time. We strongly believe that this could be your 20th time to shine allover. When we look at you the young generation and what you've done, we be content of the next generation after us.. More blessings

Thanks KYV youths for accepting that life is not all about dependence but one has to toil and pave their own way through. In this you came up with this idea that is more likely to open up financial doors. All da best for KYV YOUTHS.

May 19, 2019 22:35

Vickie Nakalanzi

May 19, 2019 18:29

This project has been and is a prospering one in the society ever since its initiative, we have no doubt in their production because it has always been a quality that everyone has appreciated.

Eve mugalu

May 19, 2019 14:45

Its always hard to believe that in this era with all the social platforms and recreations, there would stand such an incredible group involving young generation to focus all their time and energy onto a profound and productive idea.
May God see you through in all your struggles

Margret kyeswa

May 19, 2019 13:06

Its now quite evident on how this idea has improved and created an impact in the society as it has seen and rendered opportunities to the jobless youth to attain a living.
As a perspective stands an idle mind is a devil's workshop since then most of these youths minds are active hence creativity.
*KYV together, KYV at heart*


May 19, 2019 11:01

Thanks kyv for the work done and we're looking forward for more efforts in empowering motivating and improving the lives of many youth in the community in order to see a developed society and a smile on everyone's face.God bless the works of your hands

Olio Okurut Okole

May 19, 2019 08:44

Now me I'm a teacher from northern Uganda and its now 2 full years ever since my school started using KYV quality chalk. But since then we've never looked back to using another product because of the good services rendered. Where they do deliveries to us at any moment we need chalk.
Now our term is opening on Monday but they made deliveries already.
I got to know them through social media platforms and I had to contact them because we had a problem of chalk in our region as you all know hoe remote areas are.
Thank you very much
Make your vote now have just made mine. God bless you

Good morning everyone, I want to first thank all of you for voting these boys and girls of Kyengera Youths Visioners. I'm a teacher in some secondary school in their community but whatever you've said about these youth is very true 100% because me have found them so polite and I didn't know that its the same way they treat you that side. These youth got a good product compared to what we had before they came on market and I believe they will surely open up more branches allover the country with time.
Thank you kyv for your genuine p

May 18, 2019 06:22

I can not get tired of talking about the wounders of this project. The way youth have gained from it. Many searched for jobs and failed, thy started to think that it's the end of them, bt when started working in the chalk project , they acquired skills got income from it and one could not think of job hunting again. All thanks for this project that many hopes were restored.

May 17, 2019 17:32

They really inspire the youth and community at large....we can all do something with the little available resources we have around us in order to make a better society and living for our nation

May 17, 2019 16:58

That is a great innovation that can keep the youths working towards a meaningful livelihood but may I ask if there exists a market that can utilize your products for long periods without competitors....and how profitable is this business or products in your country....

May 17, 2019 15:25

I am awed by your project.i don't believe chalk production could be broken down into this.Great idea/project you have embarked on and i wish to see it executed.
Kindly go through my project to leave a comment also:
