Kampala: The Private Sector Foundation Uganda (PSFU), in collaboration with Delight Uganda Limited, recently held a stakeholder engagement meeting for the “Delight Works With Young People” project, aimed at supporting young entrepreneurs in northern Uganda.
The Foundation in a press release said that since its launch in 2020, the project has created over 6,000 jobs for young men and women, offering them decent and fulfilling work opportunities.
Col. (Rtd) Charles Patrick Engola, the Minister of State for Labour, Employment, and Industrial Relations, graced the stakeholder engagement and commended PSFU and other private-sector players for their contribution towards curbing youth unemployment.
PSFU also partnered with the Diocese of Northern Uganda – Gulu to engage the community and encourage parents and spouses to support young women. They recognised and awarded six supportive couples who each received a bicycle and two goats to increase their household income.
This project is implemented in partnership with the Mastercard Foundation Uganda.
