Welcome to Gweri Sub-County!
The first YAI site can be found in Soroti, Uganda, which is located in the eastern part of the country. Soroti is home to ten number of sub-counties, one of which is Gweri.
Gweri was selected as the first project site because of its high rate of youth unemployment, vulnerable households and food insecurity. The area is also home to fertile soils, which in combination with the above issues, made for the perfect starting point.
YAI will be working with two different parishes within the Gweri sub-county – Omugenya and Awaliwal. Ten youth from each village will be selected for the first cohort, set to begin in February 2018.
