My Story from the International Youth Camp in Masindi August 2009

4 participants from TYSA attended the above youth camp and here are their stories

Pascilia Osere (Pambo) According to me, am very proud because this camp has helped me to advance my career as a footballer and as a leader. I played against Uganda National Soccer Team. I now understand much more about youth issues in the community. I am also happy as we visited many places in Uganda and the most exciting one was the Murchison falls. I have learnt about other people cultures, dances and believe from different countries like Tanzania, Denmark, Sudan and Uganda. In conclusion, the youth camp was very good; facilitators were great and I learnt so much. I will never forget this day in my life. I give thanks to my organization TYSA for giving me a chance to attend this camp.

Trizer Nyongesa I have learnt a lot from this East Africa youth camp in Masindi. The visit to Murchison fall was great experience. Cultural songs, dances from different communities in East Africa were excellent. Making the youth count discussion was lively as It opened space for the youth to express themselves as leaders of today not just waiting for tomorrow. Socializing with many people was good and learning new games like gymnastics. A lot of thanks to TYSA for allowing me to participate in this youth camp

Mercyline Ipara I enjoyed visiting the Uganda gift of nature. We went to Murchison falls of which I didn’t expect that such a thing could even happen. TYSA gave me this chance to come and wish many more youths could get such an opportunity. I shared my experience and developed my self esteem. I now understand how young people are supposed to be enhanced in their leadership skills and good governance. I learnt how to encourage the youth to become aware of the importance of democracy and human rights in the society. I learnt about youth and job creation and wealth creation where I learnt that wealth is the ability of an individual to survive for so many days ahead. I just enjoyed the place and activities. It was wow!!!

Atieno Oduor It was my first time to come to Uganda. The camp was so nice to me. I didn’t expect to see such things as the Murchison fall. I saw big town like Kampala. Another that I want to put across is about the tour which was educational. I learnt a lot about becoming a leader and job creation

Dear Friends, We want to share with you the great inspiration that your support is giving to the rural girls. Today, 3 girls are in Uganda attanding the International youthcamp which brings together young people from East Africa and Europe.
