The students under the Presidential Initiative on Skilling the Girl and Boy Child (PISGBC) project on Tuesday 28th May, 2024 started showcasing their products.

The ceremony took place at Luzira Skilling Centre, situated at the Prisons Complex, Luzira Prison. The products were showcased by students of embroidery, hairdressing, bakery, tailoring, knitting as well as leather designing and shoe making.

Mr. Moses Kizito Nsubuga, the Kampala Regional Coordinator, who represented the Head of ONC office, Hajjat Hadijah Uzeiye Namyalo as the Chief Guest commended President Yoweri Museveni for thinking about the vulnerable youth in Kampala in particular and Uganda in general where he decided to offer them vocational skills free of charge so that they are able to uplift their livelihoods.

He therefore called on the students to put into practice the skills that they have acquired because no one is responsible for their destiny apart from themselves.
