THE YOUNG ACHIEVERS
AWARDS WERE FOUNDED
FIVE YEARS AGO.
TODAY WE LAUNCH THE
TH
4 EDITION OF THE
YOUNG ACHIEVERS
AWARDS.
We recognise and honor
outstanding Ugandan youth who
have excelled in different fields
for their innovation, excellence
and leadership that is making a
positive contribution in
transforming our communities.
For the past years we have
recognized outstanding
individuals who have shaped
our country in one way or
another and inspired others
to pursue their dreams.
Our overall objective is to
showcase the best of young
entrepreneurs and leaders
who serve as examples for
their peers.
The biggest challenge for us
has been how best to offer
onward support for
enterprises and initiatives of
these Young Achievers.
“
It is a great privilege and joy
for us to host the 4th edition
of the Awards.
It has been a great challenge
every time, however, we are
most grateful to the founding
Board of Directors who offered
great support and direction,
sponsors and all those who
believe in our vision.
These Awards are an excellent
opportunity to say thank you
and to celebrate achievements
and excellence and youth
leadership, and we look forward
to celebrating this event on the
19th December Victory Hall,
Serena Kampala Hotel”

These Achievers are en
example of the great
opportunity that lies in the
huge numbers of African
youths, as opposed to being
the problem.
The Awards ceremony will see

people working closely elevate
our country and as an
organisation, we continue to
support strong and robust Youth
Engagement in our communities

realise their true potential.

our sponsors Dettol, Ericsson,
Nile Breweries, NSSF, Dembe
Group, UCC, African Alliance,
UMEME, Uganda Development

people to fulfill their true
potential.

important opportunity to do
just that.
