Reignite is not just about career development. Youth awareness about policies that affect their lives forms another integral part of our work. Youth knowledge and skills in public policy and advocacy enables us prepare leaders responsible not only for themselves but also for the communities they live in. Ms. Primah Kwagala from the Center for Health, Human Rights, and Development led the session on advocacy, what it means, and how her life changed ever since she embarked on doing what she currently does as an advocate for human rights.
However, we decided to combine this training with another session on the “Art and Science of Networking” where Mr. Benjamin Rukwengye from The African Centre for Media Excellence (ACME) , inform of a power point presentation and a practical exercise on pitching, taught participants the important role networking plays in positioning them to be better professionals for future opportunities.
We are very grateful to all our facilitators for the commitment and dedication to our trainees.
