Youth As Volunteer Network Society volunteers walking in park during walk for water event

Complacency and individualism do not make us happier than those without basic needs. By sharing our gifts, talent, knowledge, expertise and personal wealth with others we enrich our own lives but build and strengthen those bridges between us.

You or I may not be able to change the world as individuals but together, when we join hands, we can accomplish so much. Just like “eating a big elephant” if each of us does a small part for the sake of supporting those youths and those vulnerable individuals, we can make our communities more habitable while creating a world united in diversity.

This is the best legacy we can leave behind for our children and those in our care. If the youth, especially girls are empowered there is no reason why we do not have a safe and a bright future. Remember that such young people are the leaders of tomorrow whether we may want it or not.

Walk For Water Youth As Volunteer Network Society

By empowering the youth with essential skills, knowledge and wisdom to lead we are preparing them for a future in which those talents and skills are re-invested in the community.

In a turbulent country we provide an alternative future to one filled with terrorism, war, and violence. That is why The Youths As Volunteers Integrated Network Society took the initiative to reach out to these vulnerable Ugandans and Africans to help them better their communities with limited resources.

Apart from empowering the youth in vocational skills, it is essential to attain sustainability by engaging the local people in social development and health programs. This is only possible with a permanent Community Centre where all people no matter what race, creed, religion, gender, age or various background can gather and participate in self-help initiatives.

In this center, we plan to establish a permanent Water Bank through a rainwater-harvesting system. The rainwater harvesting system will simplify most of the activities in the area and provide a source of drinking water to the locals.

With this center in place, we hope to attack the problems of illiteracy, poverty, and disease, heads on. This project is where our greatest needs lie. The completion of the Centre will simplify the rest of our projects and our goals will be easier to achieve. This center is our “OASIS of hope” in the community.

A missing volunteer staff.The agency members are in emotional pain for not knowing as to what happened to our volunteer staff photographer Joanna Linke.She is an extraordinary photographer and sometime back one of us took trouble to reach out to her as it seemed at a time that she may have been going through some form of emotional pain. Since that time, all of our messages hit a dead end and the internet only shows that at onetime that she had been listed missing.It’s very hard hiring committed younger volunteers and therefore losing one of them isn’t easy.The hope is, someday we may get some answers about her fate.Pray with our agency as we look for Johanna🙏 See MoreSee Less

Yavins Education Centre is an OASIS of HOPE to the hurting world. We are led by hope and governed by conviction in amidst of cynicism and divergent opinions which challenges yet we never give up any inch of progress.Our structures as exhibited in attached media, are designed to cater for the children and staff living with disabilities such the physically handicapped, the deaf and all others in that category.We’ve been criticized for doing this [for financial reasons] but until one gets a disability, then they will understand the pain of those children who can’t walk nor talk.We are on the move and we cant stop until children have access to education, clean & better facilities.
