Gather with U-TOUCH and U-TOUCH Uganda sponsored students for this live virtual event to celebrate the run. Prizes and raffles will be announced during the celebration, so you will not want to miss it!
U-TOUCH provides technology education certification for thousands of students in Uganda enabling the youth to become employed. Their income transforms their livelihood as well as that of their families and communities breaking the cycle of poverty and changing the future for children in Uganda. With your help, we can continue to provide this education, and give you an opportunity to win some great prizes for participating!
Help U-TOUCH bring technology training and education to the youth and especially young women in Uganda. Technology education means empowerment, employment, education, income, health, dignity, confidence and self-reliance, reducing gender-based violence and early-child marriage.
