    Something To Do At The Youth Center

    Nakivale is home to thousands of youth – and they’re looking for something to do. Gathering with friends and being active is important, but there is a lack of activities in the settlement.

    A brand new youth center was built, but it sits nearly empty. It’s a gathering space for youth but the only thing inside are chairs, a few books and a couple of basketballs. That was the case until Jimmy, ARC Logistics Officer, set to work getting a table tennis set delivered.

    He recruited a few youth and staff to help set it up. Now, the many youth who come by will have something to do. And, they may even be challenged to a game by ARC staff, Isaac and Patrick, who plan to show off their table tennis skills.
