Over the years I have learned about many things including but not limited to computers, business and education. The knowledge acquired helped me develop website designing, entrepreneurship and community activism skills.
These skills help me, run a small mobile money business, with the aim of employing at least 3 youths before the end of 2017 and Gagawala graphics ltd, one of the fastest growing website design, graphics design and printing business in Kampala, Uganda employing 8 young skilled professionals who didn’t have jobs. In all the businesses I involve, I like to emphasize self sustainability.
This is the reason why I honour invitations to hold workshops in rural and rural-urban areas.
The last free entrepreneurship workshop, I facilitated was in Masese slum at Jinja(Eastern Uganda).
To make it inclusive and have maximum attention from everyone, I suggested we have a question and answer session instead of a speech kind or black board kind of class.
Everyone agreed. Questions started to flow from participants. One of the questions the participants asked was “What things do we have to consider, to be able to start a business?” Answers contributed were idea, market, labour, skill, capital and time. I emphasized that without embracing all the 6 elements, the business my not grow or even serve it’s purpose in a single day. Business the discussion, we had a little physical activity in which participants made a circle while holding each others’ hands raising it up high.
This activity helps participants to work together for productivity. And also help relieve and resolve what’s learned from the discussions.
More activities at the event were poping, breakdance, sports workshops and dance competitions happened.
