Meeting the Needs

Our journey begins with understanding. We've conducted a comprehensive needs assessment within the Mpigi community to identify the challenges our youth face. From limited access to quality education to a lack of opportunities, we've heard their voices, and their stories fuel our determination.

A Space of Possibility

But we're not just building walls; we're creating dreams. The Omuto Youth Center will be a space meticulously designed to ignite curiosity, foster creativity, and nurture growth. Through strategic renovations, innovative design, and cutting-edge technology, we're constructing an environment that screams, "You belong here!"

Unique Styles

We believe in building bridges that last. Our sustainability plan extends beyond construction. We're committed to forming partnerships with local and international organizations who share our vision. Together, we'll create a network of support that ensures the Omuto Youth Center thrives for generations to come.

Unique Styles

Education is not confined to textbooks, and learning knows no boundaries. Our carefully crafted programs span from informative workshops to dynamic skill-building sessions. Guided by mentors, powered by passion, and fueled by community spirit, these initiatives will empower our youth to excel.

Timelines and Triumphs

Our journey has milestones – each a testament to our commitment. From the foundation laying to the grand opening, we're transparently tracking progress. We anticipate the completion of the Youth Center within 2 years, promising our community a beacon of hope sooner than they imagine.

Why MYP is Crucial

MYP is a right that all young people have according to the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). According to this UN Convention, youth have the fundamental right to participate and access information related to decision-making processes that affect your life and well-being. 

  • There is clear evidence that MYP benefits society, has positive effects on youth development, strengthens organizational capacity and is key to achieving Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) program outcomes. Young people can and should be involved on different levels of the decision-making process, in this case specifically involving SRHRs; this can be on a local level, within a family, at school, in the community or at work. Youth can also be engaged in making decisions on a regional or national level or on a national or international youth council.
  • Youth not only have the fundamental right to meaningfully participate, but there is also a great advantage to young people involvement. If young people voice is heard, programs and policies can be adapted to reflect the actual needs of young people and can become more effective. Youth can learn about these aspects of MYP and how to act upon them in the civic participation, movement building and dealing with turnover.
  • Meaningful youth participation empowers young people to become leaders. Ultimately MYP contributes to youth personal development in becoming a more confident, skilled, connected and empowered young person who is an active agent of change in their communities. Through Workshops and learning from different resources will teach youth about the core aspects of MYP and how they can use it to create important change on achieving SRHRs for youth

Omuto values Meaningful Youth Participation (MYP)

This means that young people, work in all stages of decision-making in our organization and can participate on equal terms with adults at a number of levels, or alternatively work independently from adults and make decisions solely with the involvement of youth voices.

It's time to stop talking and start acting to make change.
