The foundation is a youth-driven initiative that focuses on promoting and supporting access to high-quality, relevant integrated training interventions, career development, and skills training opportunities.
The Toronto-Canada based social entrepreneur while speaking about the Foundation’s purpose during his meet up with Justin Trudeau the current Canada Prime Minister over the weekend stated that its purpose will be to provide Ugandans, particularly the youth, with skills that will enable them to be employed or self-employed, so helping to reduce the country’s rising unemployment rates.
