Mr. Patrick Ssebowa, National Program Manager – Plan International.

Sharing lessons from the study by Plan International that had conducted in 2013 to inform one of their program implementation, Patrick noted that youth-led transformation begins with youth at the center where they participate, in the design, implementation and monitoring of youth programs.

He emphasized the need for shared partnerships because they facilitate interaction between private sector, public sector and the young people. Civil society and private sector need to define and align their program/project values to young people’s needs.

Mr. Ssebowa encouraged stakeholders to support youth groups with business development decisions and skills to run agricultural enterprise as businesses as youth are already forming savings an investment groups.
