To fulfill my task as the new Executive Chairman for Mukono District NGO Forum, today I started to visit up Organizations to check on their activities down in communities.
Today I visited Armours of Glory Ministries along Bugerere-Kayunga Road and they are really doing amazing work with the youth as you can have a look at the attached photos below. Feel free to place your orders and to send them youths to get trained in practical skills.
I talked to their trainees, about the usefulness of vocational skills and how they can utilize them to earn a living. We discussed about how they can start their own enterprises and how they can brand and promote their products. Above all, I emphasized working as a team.
