Welcome to Yetu
Youth Empowerment Trust Uganda is a not for profit organisation working to transform the lives of rural youth through Financial Inclusion, Technical and Vocational Education, and Sexual and Reproductive Health interventions.
YETU was founded in 2014 by a young woman who had received business training from International Labour Organisation to train young people who presented a population with dashed dreams, dissuaded from entrepreneurial investments, majority of whom were dependent on parents, relatives and spouses.
While the interventions of the social enterprise were successful in improving the lives of over 76% of beneficiaries, the majority spent more than half of their savings on health, while others were living school for marriage alongside other challenges. In 2016, the enterprise was registered as a non-government-organization to provide holistic support to young people especially young women and girls.
Our Vision: Empowered and thriving youths especially young women and girls
Mission: To support youth especially young women and girls with resources, skills and knowledge they need to thrive through service provision, capacity building and advocacy.
