SHARE grew out of the need to skill and prepare children, youth and women, to ACT TOGETHER to skill them and tap into available opportunities that would help them address poverty, ignorance, disease, food insecurity, and general abuse and violation of human rights. These violations affect children, youth and women more since Half the world is composed of women – and half the world is under 25 years of age with Uganda having the youngest population globally. This rapidly growing population, is characterised by very high dropout rates at all education levels, high child marriages, no innovation in schools, no employability skills, not motivated teachers hence prepares young people for low skilled jobs, at high risk of contracting disease due to limited knowledge about SRHR, low paying jobs, no potential to create their own jobs which traps most of them in endless cycle of unemployment, poverty, conflict and disease.
