Communication for Development (C4D)

Young Ugandans face numerous development challenges ranging from poverty to unemployment and climate change. However, traditional media has been slow to tell youth stories taking into account their own narratives.

Given young people are the experts of their own experience and their voices and solutions to address the challenges they face, it's critical to create a platform to give young people a voice to share their experiences, challenges they have endured, and most importantly, how they are delivering solutions to development challenges. Shining the spotlight on youth issues through creative and impactful storytelling is key to informing public policy development by the government, and inspiring action and change by both government and their communities.  


  1. Build the competence of young people in digital storytelling.
  2. Provide storytelling toolkits and resources to young people across Uganda.  
  3. Engage young people in community journalism to influence public discourse and action to meet youth needs.
