Kuyuka Knowledge Centre for Health Mukinge Youth Development Foundation

A platform where Knowledge is learnt and shared among youths, adults, vulnerable groups, pupils, students and the general public.

Mission

As Kuyuka Knowledge Centre for Health we envisage to build upon our proven track record as a centre of excellence in HIV and AIDS information collection, management, and dissemination, by extending that remit to cover, and link strategically, the related health issues of tuberculosis, sexually transmitted infections, sexual and reproductive health, malaria, and maternal and child health. By doing so, as Mukinge Youth Development Foundation we seek to help strengthen, complement, and realise the strategic aims of government and the National AIDS/HIV Council with regard to their national priority areas in health communication.

Description

Kuyuka is your one-stop-platform for health information in Kasempa. Developed from the Mukinge Youth Development Foundation HIV Resource Centre, the centre shall be expanded to produce these IECs and these IEC shall include the related topics of malaria, tuberculosis, maternal and child health, sexual and reproductive health, as well as HIV and AIDS.

YOUTHS ABLE TO BRING DEVELOPMENT

SAM_3899

Mr. Gerald Yungana      

Executive Director

Mukinge Youth Development Foundation

MYDF was formed in 2012 in response to the call to fight against HIV/AIDS, Drug Abuse and Human Right and Gender among youths in the District. MYDF conduct weekly meetings to discuss different problems affecting youths in Kasempa. In each meeting youths do have time to share on some topics and thereafter questions are invited from the other youths. In Kasempa District, there are no youth development organizations and we as MYDF, we want to help our fellow youths especially those who are not in employment to be self sustained by coming up with various Income Generating Activities (IGAs). With these IGAs more youths are going to benefit and be able to contribute to the development of the nation. MYDF has no reliable donors and we are still looking for donors. CHAZ only provided the youths with a skill in Peer Education and almost everyone is not in employment and are willing to work. MYDF has a plan to embark on a number of projects once funds are mobilised. With the membership paid by the members, we have continued to work but under difficulties. Your donations to this NGO can contribute to our achievement of our set goals.
