                     PROJECTS INTERVENED BACKGROUND

On 27th  December 2020 Kuza Troupe Africa, held a youth leadership training for peace and life celebration to raise awareness of leadership and the need for peace in our communities, the overall purpose of the one day event was to build a platform from which to further address issues that threaten peace amongst youth in mukono areas, as it was a one day event, our overall goal was simply to begin the conversation, through the event over 25 children, youth and adults were engaged, 20 of these participated in dialogues including over 15 youth.

In addition to providing a platform for Lumuli residence/youth to let their voice be heard. The dialogues also provided us with an opportunity to gather information on the status needs and interests of Lumuli, and what we found out was to support our overall goal to create a longer-term program to engage Lumuli youth groups.

 

KUZA TROUPE AFRICA, YPO, Friends Forever and Peace Corps Uganda recognized that positive youth development requires an environment where youth are continually relegate and be given opportunities to practice and demonstrate leadership through dialogues and observations, we found that youth in Kasokoso would benefit greatly from ongoing engagement and capacity building we took the skills identified by youth through dialogues into consideration when designing a follow up program. We also took consideration the needs of Uganda youth as a whole this being a slum area in particular.

We focused on the needs of female adolescents percent surveys show that 20% of girls between 15-24 years get into early marriages and 37% give birth by 18 years. These factors are main contributors to the reason that 7/10 girls do not complete primary education, this actually threatens the foundation of peace, therefore a clear need is to provide ongoing education and greater opportunities for adolescent girls.

Kuza Troupe Africa need to put much emphasis on supporting girl education and spread the gospel of peace rescue training program in schools throughout Uganda.

Dances teach social patterns and values and help people work, mature, praise or criticize members of the community while celebrating festivals and funerals, competing, reciting history, proverbs, and poetry; and to encounter gods. African dances are largely participatory, with spectators being part of the performance.

She says that;

Dancing provides a great, overall low-impact aerobic workout. Like other forms of aerobic exercise, dance strengthens the heart, lungs and circulatory system. But the varied movements also improve core strength, coordination, balance, flexibility, muscle tone and spatial awareness.

Dancing bolsters physical and mental health by helping to prevent falls, improve posture and flexibility, lift mood and ease anxiety. It’s also a fun activity that sharpens the mind, increases aerobic power and strength, builds social bonds, and can reduce pain and stiffness

Kuza Troupe Africa is a non profit organization that believes we can all help build a better world by empowering our most underutilized asset: youths. KTA works with communities across Uganda to build the leadership abilities of their youth from diverse backgrounds to tackle local and national issues.
