Thanks to AYDL’s relentless advocacy and commitment to linking local issues from her districts in the North and North Eastern Uganda to the national level.
The Youth Livelihood Programme (YLP) Manager at the Ministry of Gender, Labor and Social Development (MoGLSD) finally constituted and launched a YLP Consultation CSO Working Group in 2017. This took place on 9th May 2017 at the MoGLSD Board Room.
Mr. Happy Ahimbisibwe, the then YLP Manager at MoGLSD said, "I have established the YLP CSO Consultation Group to mainstream youth development and empowerment in the work of the YLP.
This group is also designed to enable young people to shape government policy by sensitizing us to the impact of YLP on the youth and the future of the country.
In this way we are saying that youth development is now everybody’s business. It is not to be pushed aside. Every government department must ensure that its policies talk to youth development".
