managed by Youth With A Focus Teso
Youth With A Focus Teso (YWAFT) is grassroots, youth-led, nonpartisan, nonprofit, Community-Based Organization (CBO) established in Soroti, Eastern Uganda. It was created on the 12th May 2014 by young volunteers to transform communities by inspiring girls, women and youth, and vulnerable persons in Teso sub-region to drive a new era of sustainable development, socioeconomic growth, and productivity. It is legally registered to operate in Uganda with Soroti District Local Administration authorities with the registration number SN/45/2019. The creation of (YWAFT) was a result of pressing challenges faced by women, school-girls, youth and vulnerable persons that culminated from long-term Karamojong cattle rustling episodes, uprisings and insurgencies that affected the economy and caused abject poverty among the communities, disrupted livelihood mechanisms and claimed lives of people in Teso and Karamoja sub-regions for two decades.
