Participation and Knowledge sharing;

Uganda’s Youth can be a creative force, a dynamic source of innovations, and they have undoubtedly, throughout history, participated, contributed, and even catalysed important changes in political systems and economic opportunities. However, In Uganda youth also face poverty, barriers to education, barriers to own land multiple forms of discrimination and limited employment prospects and opportunities. Youth unemployment stands at 82% in Uganda.

Opportunities for youth to engage in governance and participate in political and decision-making processes depend largely on the political, socioeconomic, and cultural contexts where social norms in many parts of Uganda result in multiple forms of discrimination against young people as well as women. Both formal and informal engagement can be understood as political participation, and both are beneficial for a vivid and resilient democracy and should be supported. It is evident in Uganda that the participation of young people in formal, institutional political processes is relatively low young people are always harassed by the current regime connecting them to opposition political parties. Many youths who actively participate in politics have been arrested or killed andthis challenges the representativeness of the political system and leads to the disenfranchisement of young people.Assure Uganda has been carrying meetings, workshops and trainings to increase youth political and social-economic participation 2020/2021 Assure Uganda has trained a core group of 508 young trainers to increase youth political participation.
