A total of over 150 million has been invested by these Rotary clubs to see that the youth can be able to train as well as empowering some of the enterprises that have been started by these youths. We are looking forward for more clubs to adopt the program to create employment for our youths.
Currently the initiative is looking at owning a Sam Owari Rotary Vijana Poa Village. The facility is, spearheaded by the Rotary Club of Kampala North, and it will be a Rotary International center of excellence in getting youth into employment
It will empower and inspire the youth to be professional, innovative, employable, employed and to employ others through acquisition of the right attitude for entrepreneurship development. 40 acres of land have been purchased 55km from Kampala for this city, estimated to cost USD $ 5,000,000 over a 5-7 year period.
Support is sought towards realization of this centre. The following will be the components of the City among others; Innovation Hubs; Entrepreneurship skills; Youth Resource Center; Linkages /Outreaches; Knowledge Labs; Research; Enterprise Incubation, Demonstration Farm, PR and marketing, Recreation, Conferencing, Outdoor Learning, Team building, Business Management. The support will assist with the 2nd phase of the city, which is to establish the main building with meeting rooms, training rooms and conferencing.
