Majority of South Sudanese refugee youths, living in various settlements across Northern Uganda, spend huge amounts of their time doing nothing. Some humanitarian organizations are putting in place centres where the youngsters come for various skills-trainings, necessary for enabling them to become self-reliant in the near future. Local non-governmental organisation, Hummingbird Action for Peace and Development, with financial support from German Catholic Bishops’ Organisation for Development Cooperation, MISEREOR, established a new facility to serve a similar purpose. Both refugees and their counterparts, in the surrounding local communities will be enrolled. Musa Sabir reports.
