When we reflect on 2019, we will remember a land mark year for the Youth centre market by strategic expansion, dramatic centre growth- a Year we have host the largest number of community events and youth camps! a year we have demonstrated that our youth led approach works never losing sight of our long term direction. The centre has been a focal area for organising holiday education camps, talent development shows and hosting a cocktail of community celebrations for end of year. as a result the centre has mobilised community youth on the innovation hub and have composed and recorded 5 song for the centre program areas, a total of over 60 community women coming together to save and for economic empowerment, a total of over 80 community children joining our early learning program, a total of over 30 children everyday coming to read at the community library and play both indoor and outdoor games, fetch water, the community attending health awareness dental programs and participating in sports. While the page of this report reflects on past successes until 2019, our attention now turns to an exciting, New Year in which the centre will expand its impact through other rural communities and plan for exciting growth to come. Never forgetting this ultimate accountability, we celebrate the past years, thanking our valued partners, talented CFYDDI young staff and tireless volunteers for their commitment and support, and as we start 2020 prepared for strategic growth, increased impact, resolutely committed to our mission.
Two more new additional study rooms constructed free up community library that previously acted as study room changing community learners lives. Your ideas, inspiration enrich our community work while celebrating the important successes and milestones which you have helped us reach.
The new learning rooms are a huge and very important milestone in our service to rural communities. They are multipurpose rooms!!! They act as learning centers through the term until afternoon and they act as indoor play rooms for Evenings, weekends and holiday time. Just this last 2 weeks holiday a total of above 500 users accessed the community library, the children corners and the community play areas.
Through your hard work and continued support community activities are gaining space we need to read, play as users explore a new world of possibilities and look up to the future.
This partnership is one of the dynamic partnerships that have helped transform rural communities. Thank you for your individual and collective efforts while supporting our cause through Global Giving.

Community Libraries are endeavoring to demystify the book in our rural communities by making reading materials available and Medical books and health programs are undertaken at community levels with much ease.
They are contributing to the fight against illiteracy, ignorance, poverty, and disease by making relevant reading materials accessible to community members.

We are expanding community need programs. You give opportunity to those less privileged and make us arrived to a dream. It’s an investment in a variety of social and livelihood sustainable development projects that have really impacted society and they have become a blessing to communities.
With your support we have regained the previous lost glory for the community library. For the past two years the community library has been a classroom study area for two classes that was portioned using the bookshelves and it has been a challenging moment.
Your support has helped us establish two learners room to shift the classes that previously occupied the community library. It feels safe again for children and the community library services that had been suspended for only evening and weekends are back to normal. Thank you for your support.
But friends each year we will require a new block and your support can make this possible! This will mean children promoted to the next class will study well with minimal disturbances. Help us make it possible. We are currently serving 76 children on the early learning program and serving various community programs at the centre to include trainings, meetings, play projects, skilling programs and providing water to community.
Additionally, we have been able to reach further rural deprived communities of Buvuma Island and Namulesa community in Jinja district through establishment of community libraries along with Skills Building programs . We’re also excited to be making an impact in a number of schools serving students to build essential skills.
We’re deeply grateful for the support of our ever-growing network of persons supporting us through GlobalGiving.

Dear GlobalGiving Development Partners, all of us at the Centre for Youth Driven Development Initiatives (CFYDDI) we exceedingly feel privileged that you selected our projects to support out of so many wonderful causes in the world and we are so thrilled to have you on the team!! As the year 2018 comes to a close, we want to say a SPECIAL THANK YOU! For all the support and generous donations that have allowed us to change the lives of rural community vulnerable children in all our target communities. Every day, we see the fruits of your labor in the transitional project development stages here at CFYDDI and we remain proud of your contribution to the global effort to bring about community development for all and especially in resource constrained communities. With the end of the year in sight, it is natural to reflect on what you have helped us accomplish during the past 12 months & to gauge how we have been of service and chart the impact your efforts continue to bring in rural communities. 40 community women are able to save through the women with a purpose here at the centre and conduct entrepreneurship workshops and training to better their house hold incomes and start new income generating opportunities.
We are committed to continuing this compassionate, world-changing work for many years to come together and pass it over to the next generation after us.
We wish you all a restful holiday period and a successful, meaningful new year full of vibrant possibilities ahead, and we continue to thank you for your continuing support and partnership in Harnessing the Demographic Dividends through Investment in Rural children, Youth and Women.
