Equip youths with skills to create wealth and jobs in Uganda

President Yoweri Museveni the NRM National Chairman has seen off 720 students graduate at Victory School of Beauty in Natete, Kampala District. The beneficiaries qualified in various fields that include cosmetology, fashion, and design, radio and TV presentation, hotel management, functions, and decorations.

The National Chairman would like to see Victory School of Beauty expand its programs to equip more youth with skills in our aim to create wealth and jobs through services, and industry.

He also commended Mr. Robert Kasibante for joining the government in its efforts to produce leather shoes locally, this effort is similar to the skilling projects, whose target is value addition to local products.

A lot of funds are used in importing goods that can be produced in Uganda. The government has facilitated the youth by providing them with common user facilities. Why should we buy furniture from countries that have got no forests while we have forests within?

We export hides and skins in their raw form and end up buying expensive shoes from Italians.

The government will start a leather processing industry in Luweero District. We shall also soon embark on making sweaters that were being previously imported.
