Welcome to Enterprise Uganda - Your One-stop Enterprise Development Centre
Promoting Enterprise Growth and Excellence
President Yoweri Museveni has advised the Youths in Rubabo to immediately get started in business after acquiring entrepreneurship and business skills. This was said on his behalf by the Minister of State for Public Service Hon. Sezy Mbaguta while closing a 5-day holiday camp Business & Enterprise Start-up Tool (BEST) Programme conducted by Enterprise Uganda at St. Peter’s S.S., Nyarushanje, Rubabo from 10-14 May 2010.
The business clinic attracted 974 youths from Rubabo County who vowed to implement the skills they had acquired to create their own jobs and improve the livelihood of their families despite the limited resources available. Rubabo has a high population with each family of 6-8 members having on average a landholding of 1 acre.

Mr. Charles Ocici, the Executive Director of Enterprise Uganda said that out of the 13 Business Clinics they had conducted so far for 7431 youths, the Rubabo group had the youngest participants in terms of age. He said this was a wonderful for them because they were getting the right attitudinal and survival skills at an early age. He counseled the youths that the limited land acreage in Rubabo should not hold them back in realizing their dreams. Mr. Ocici assured the participants that attending the business clinic broadens one’s business-seeking opportunities beyond agriculture and even outside one’s area of birth. He said, “No race, tribe, religion, title, or position has a monopoly on success or wealth. Attitude determines altitude in life.”

While opening the seminar, the Minister of State for Youths Hon. Jessica Alupo told the youths that the Government had earmarked some funds for the youths to access and invest in income generating projects. She however advised that only youths with a positive attitude and good projects would access the funds through her ministry. The area MP for Rubabo Hon. Mary Paula Turyaikayo thanked the Government for the support to Enterprise Uganda for empowering the youth in job creation.
