PoLA-Lab goes to Iganga, Eastern Uganda

“Now I know politics is more than elections and political parties”
Ugandan youth make up almost half of the voting population. However, youth voices have failed to be reflected in policy outcomes, especially youth interest areas like education, health services and employment. Youth rarely come together to collectively pursue common interests, the result of a lack of coordination as well other resources. Although reforms have created a number of leadership spaces for youth to participate in national governance and development.
