Hon. Peace Mutuuzo the Minister of State for Gender and Culture has condemned the acts of homosexuality which have become a threat to the Ugandan culture lately.

The Minister made these remarks on Thursday as the beneficiaries of the Presidential Initiative on Skilling the Girl / Boy Child (PISGBC) project showcased different skills acquired from the Sub-Way Skilling Centre in Kampala.

The Minister also hailed President Yoweri Museveni for promoting Non-Formal Education through skilling the Ugandan youths.

“President Museveni has ushered in Non-Formal Education through skilling. Through this skilling, the youth are assured of better income and most importantly the students are young people who will transform Uganda, I was pleased to have people who had lost hope being transformed into useful citizens. I am happy for the drug addicts who are recovering,” Hon. Mutuuzo explained.

In her remarks, Ms. Rhonah Kamahoro the Administrator of the Sub-Way Centre noted that they have groomed the hopeless children and currently they are all ready to face the world of work with their acquired skills.

She later thanked the State House administration for providing all the necessary facilities needed in executing their work.

The Centre which currently hosts 211 trainees, was established with a goal of providing different hands-on skills to the youth free of charge. The training runs for six months and It currently trains the needy youths in knitting, weaving, embroidery, tailoring and shoe-making.

Some of the beneficiaries were previously involved in crime such as theft and drug abuse.

Dr. Faith Katana the Special Presidential Assistant on Education and Skilling who also serves as the Project Head thanked the instructors and urged the beneficiaries to multiply the products they have made and thereafter distribute them through the market supply chain.

“I thank the instructors for the great work they have done for the students. For us it is the manifestation of works. The non-educated youth have been transformed into people who can deliver products. They have the capacity to process and have finished goods,” Dr. Katana highlighted.

“Once you secure a market, you will establish dominion for your finished quality products.” She added.

Dr. Katana further observed that drug abuse and homosexuality have negatively affected the society. She called upon Ugandans to join hands to fight the immoral acts.

Non-Formal Education refers to planned, structured programs and processes of personal and social education for young people designed to improve a range of skills and competences, outside the formal educational curriculum.
