Yesterday I met again with my great friend Hon. Lilianne Ploumen the Founder #SheDecides and former minister for foreign cooperation and international development for the Netherlands. Absolutely one of the most powerful women I have met, very strong and passionate on advancing the rights of women and girls.
It’s a wrap!! #AAHA #pmnch #Afriyan #Kigali

Hanging out with my great friend my doctor at the Same time, Dr. Ruth Balemezi. You have remained a great inspiration in my life and thank you for always working hard to ensure I am in good health.
This how we rocked on Friday 24th Feb 2017, as we joined our partners "Gifted Hands Network"to launch of the Breast Cancer Free Uganda Campaign #Kisoboka
Breast cancer is real and many women and adolescent girls in uganda are battling with this disease. As a result some have lost their breasts to cancer while others lose their life. However, what's more important to learn is that, breast cancer is preventable and curable if early detected and diagnosed. Blind women also can play a pivotal role in the fight against breast cancer. Blind women have a strong sense of touch in their hands and hence can easily detect breast cancer by touching one's breasts. However, these have to have undergone some training. This is a new innovation by our partners at Gifted Hand Network who have sent 6 blind women to Germany for a training program in early detection of breast cancer.
But how does uyahf come into the breast cancer campaign?
Well, as a youth led health rights organization we are well versed with the fact that many women and girls who are vulnerable to breast cancer are also vulnerable to other sexual reproductive health challenges like; early and unwanted pregnancy, HIV infection and infection from other STIs, sexual and gender based violence among other challenges.
In this regard, still and together with our partners at gifted hands network, we held a community focus group discussion on supporting young people to make the right choices as they confront sexual reproductive health day to day realities.
The session was modulated by our youth peer educators also largely know as community change ambassadors. The session were conducted using role plays adopted from the UNFPA -ESARO Safe Guard Young People Program where real life stories are discussed on issues regarding sex, sexuality, relationships, gender norms and roles, pregnancy, contraceptives, condoms, HIV, STIs, access to sexuality information, education and services, and the choices young people make when confronted with these issues .
These role plays stimulate debate and discussion helping young people to read, internalize, reflect, share their experiences as well as learn. At the end of the session
#FamilyIntroductionthings Thanks to these two beautiful sisters of mine that worked tirelessly to support our cousin brother Jonan as he was being introduced by her lovely girl Judith. #BanangeMukulikeyo
I have learnt that the world we live in is unequal. That's simply it.
But even those we call the most fortunate at some point were on the other side of the unequal, poor and maginalised. But through #hope #focus and #hardwork, they have crossed the line. If others can make it, why not me, why not you.
Let's begin to look at life differently with a positive attitude, the willingness to risk. Everything is possible
Have a blessed weekend
At #UYAHF1 we excited about this new partnership with Public Health Ambassadors to steer forward "Ensonga" Campaign.
These guys are crazy. #ClintonSS16
If all of us Ugandans pay tax then why not you MPs. We can't allow our country to go back to the Dogs. #taxMps #whatwouldyoudo @uyahf @paulwebs at Acacia Mall
Young people can. Young people do. Today I hosted Mark the global director Influence and strategy- Restless Development and Greg the Country Director Restless Development Uganda who paid me a curtsy visit at our office (Uganda Youth and Adolescents Health Forum) to discuss possible and practical ways through which restless development can support and impact the work youth led initiatives. We had great discussions and nobdoubt this is a continuation and a means of strengthening our partnership and collaboration with Restless Development and as AfriYAN Uganda. Thanks Testless Development for championing and believing in the Youth led model of promoting youth development to impact and influence processes.
The Big Idea Data Game. A great tool for young people to understand the framework odd the DOGs focusing on monitoring.
Data It is important for accountability. It's the life blood of decision-making and the raw material for accountability. Without high quality data providing the right information on the right things at the right time; designing, monitoring and evaluating effective policies becomes almost impossible.
But how can young people be at the top of the DATA Accountability game to track progress for the 2030 agenda. Tools like the big idea data game can be of great importance in guiding young people to understand accountability processes.
Caught up with this buddy of mine one dude that inspires me to do best, what I do. Mr. Mondo is the Ass. Commissioner for youth in the Ministry of Gender Labour and Social Development. Very committed and passionate guy on youth issues but most interesting is that he is still young at heart. at U.M.A show Ground, Lugogo
