Bikitsha is on a fact-finding mission in Uganda.
What she found was an extremely young population with rampant unemployment.
70% of Uganda’s population is younger than 30.— Nikiwe Bikitsha
Uganda has one of the fastest growing populations in the world.— Nikiwe Bikitsha
Unemployment is a real and serious problem here.— Nikiwe Bikitsha
However, youthful Ugandans are doing it for themselves.
Bikitsha spoke of Sam, a young man she met who started an agri-processing business called Uhuru Fruit Drinks that sells to local retailers. He also exports to Rwanda and Kenya.
