What you need to know:

Teacher. Noeline Kirabo is the executive director of Kyusa, an organisation that provides soft employment skills to young people in urban slums. She spoke to Gillian Nantume about her work.

What kind of work are you engaged in?
My organisation, Kalerwe Youth Urban Slums (Kyusa), enrols youth from slums between the age of 15 to 25 to teach them soft employment skills that even helped them start their own business ventures. Most of them are school drop-outs. They study on funds which they pay back when they start earning.
