Support students in Uganda create an e-library

by British Council

The youth today are being encouraged to be job creators and not job seekers and they do not have a library from where they can learn about the possible businesses that have succeeded in Uganda. The Uganda lower secondary curriculum will be changing in 2017 to integrate entrepreneurship in the teaching areas and the teachers will have no library to use as a reference source.


Students will document the processes of production within the local enterprises in Uganda and create instructional videos that will be used for marketing the activities of the entrepreneurs by creating an online library page with links to these videos. This library will also be used to improve the teaching and learning process by providing the practical entrepreneurial aspects into the curriculum.

Long-Term Impact

Since it is an online product and a needs based library then we shall introduce our work to schools with the view of profiling other enterprises within their areas. This library needs to grow to include enterprises globally such that the youth can learn from a global village.
