Driving Change Youth Initiative

Unleashing Our Potential Driving Change Youth Initiative was founded in 2012 and got registered and incorporated in 2013 as a Non-Governmental Organizational whose functional areas are located in Kampala, the Capital City of the Republic of Uganda, in East Africa.

The initiative recognizes children and youth as a vital part for the world’s social, economic and political building process. Consequently the Initiative has positioned itself as a vehicle for achieving sustainable development and security by involving young people as active participants and partners in the formulation and implementation of development strategies and programs in areas such as General Education, hands-on skills training, health awareness, volunteering and entrepreneurial development.

To this end, the Organization is committed to engage in a variety of Activities to reach out to this critical Constituency of the youth and included are the following: The School Outreach Program which is underway, is a forum which directly addresses the Second Core objective of informing young People on their health. It is currently operational as a face to face interactive Segment with our targeted Population. The Initiative connects with students and Youth by visiting their Schools where we speak to them from their respective classes on issues critical to their wellbeing such as Building Self Esteem, HIV/AIDS, Drugs and Alcoholism, and Career Guidance issues, among others. Along with the above is the Proactive Youth Program which we intend to use as a tool to promote Sports, Music, Dance and Drama among Youth Members during the School break or School Holidays. The Initiative plans to start carrying out Annual Youth Camps through which members and Participants will engage in a number of activities aimed to promote life skills and career development. Through such events, members and participants learn through play, celebrating one another’s achievements, and milestones while laying a platform for the youth to unleash their untapped potential. The DCYI Resource Centre is also a critical intervention in as far as Knowledge and Information Disbursement is concerned. The growing percentage of youth literacy due to increased effort particularly by the government and development Partners on Primary, Secondary, University and other tertiary Institutions enrolment means the availability of information and ease of accessing it will direct these youth on how to position themselves to benefit from the opportunities of the Information age. The resource center will be established to enable youth to access relevant information on empowerment, self-esteem and entrepreneurship. It will also have a Safe Sports Grounds Annex, Library and Workshop Facilities. The hands-on skills training program will offer first hand learning experience to participants as a vital remedy to the increasing burden of Youth Unemployment. The Initiative hopes to introduce activities such as; Computer Skills Training, Carpentry and woodwork, metal work and agriculture among others. These and more youth tailored projects will equip participants with practical Entrepreneurial Skills they need to meet their Personal, Professional and civic needs The hunger Fight project is a program that will be implemented by DCYI aimed at fighting hunger and malnutrition in partner schools and communities to promote healthier child Development. This is especially so because present evidence suggests that a Nutritious Diet is critical in ensuring physical, mental (psychological), and general growth.

The idea of the Black Girls Magazine was born after Annette Bazira-Okafor, a Ugandan mother living in Canada realized that the magazines her daughters, and friends were reading had something missing, no true representation of the experiences of black girls. Bazira-Okafor, a PhD student at U of T's Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, decided to create Black Girls Magazine to address the exclusion of the experiences and lived realities of young black girls.
