GOVERNMENT RESPONDS TO UYONET, REVIEWS YOUTH AND WOMEN GUIDELINES

The government of Uganda is implementing the YLP program and unfortunately over the years; there were no clear cohesion and focus and there the guidelines were not being implemented and also the government was not putting in place the right check mechanisms coupled with poor record keeping by the groups, and there were reports of misuse of funds by the district officials. UYONET has been engaging with government; specifically, with the Ministry of Gender and the youth livelihood fund manager to review guidelines for the Youth Livelihood fund policies so that they can better benefit the youth. After a series of engagements; the government has finally agreed to review the guidelines and also take on some of the key recommendations passed on to them as can be seen from the picture (on the right) but also from the meetings actions we have had with them.
