Description


YSU is a Not for profit Organisation based in Kampala, the capital of Uganda. The Organization is involved in tackling issues like HIV/AIDS, Poverty Alleviation, and Child Rights in underprivileged communities in Uganda. Since 2006, YSU has helped thousands of children from different social, economic and religious backgrounds form friendships and, crucially, learn important health issues includin...g HIV/AIDs awareness. YSU has continued to promote health and education messages to children across the country. YSU Uses "Sport in the Development Process" (SDP) approach, Thus it has been able to promote community education, development and empowerment. The YSU concept is based on this belief: that sport with a positive orientation, when integrated into the broader framework of human and social development goals and priorities, is a powerful vehicle for change. As almost every child in Uganda participates in sport, either through merely watching or actually playing, sport presents a medium of communication that children and youth are both familiar with, and willing to participate in.
