She says that the programme is not targeting youth graduates only but all youths.

“There are many youngsters in rural areas who don’t know English but are capable of using this money properly even more than the graduates can do” she says.

She asked the technical personnel to train the youth in local languages so that they entirely comprehend all the aspects of the project.

The Mayor Rukungiri Municipality Charles Makuru (FDC) who received the cheque when the president gave the money to the youth in Rukungiri Municipality during his Kigezi tour on 18th January 2015 commended the president for engaging the youth.

He warned the groups given the money to utilize it well, “Businessmen mortgage their property just to get loans but you are getting this money without interest so make sure you utilize it proper and don’t divert it to useless things that can’t bring money back.” He said

The money given to the youth is interest free to be paid back in twelve months.
