About Us

Founded in 2005, Youth Plus Policy Network (YPPN) also known as YOUTHPLUS is a youth-led and focused community development organisation based in Wakiso District, Uganda that works to enable youth to be active in the community making a difference and impact as change-makers and leaders.

YOUTHPLUS inspires, empowers and connects youth to focus and commit on issues of community and global importance to accelerate public good.

YOUTHPLUS works with youth of diverse backgrounds including rural and urban youth.

We keep an eye on the global mega trends and strategize to shape the youth to come to speed with the NOW and FUTURE.

In 2018, based on the knowledge and experience we had garnered as a youth-led and focused organisation for over a decade, we strategized to increase our social impact by investing our resources to maximize the POWER of the YOUTH + COMMUNITIES in social transformation by focusing our resources and expertise on three peri-urban communities of Kasanje, Katabi and Kajjansi (K3) through a consolidated programme dubbed K3 . This work leverages on the demographic dividends of Uganda where the youth are the majority in a rapidly urbanising and globalising community but face numerous challenges especially adolescent girls and young women in the peri-urban contexts.

As a Community Based Organisation (CBO) we are focusing on a specific context of the fishing communities around the Lake Victoria Basin (LVB), we continue to strive to drive cutting edge programmes and projects that address the socioeconomic needs of the vulnerable groups and communities in the K3 Programme Area. We do this through Knowledge Management, Advocacy and Engagement, Catalysing Solutions and  inspiring youth leaders at the community level.
