Youth Empowerment Scholarship
Established in 2018, Youth Empowerment Scholarship (YES) is a refugee educational program of the Young Adult Empowerment Initiative (YEI), that pays tuitions for unaccompanied South Sudanese refugee children in Uganda Settlements, who demonstrate academic excellence but cannot be in the classrooms due to lack of financial support.
The Nucleus Of A South Sudanese’s Story
The nucleus of a South Sudanese’s story in the recent past decades – and today, has been markedly dominated by protracted civil wars, inter-ethnic feuds and mass displacements. Over 70 percent of South Sudan’s current population is youth who were born either in internally displaced camps or in the neighbouring countries’ refugee camps.
