Gender Ministry Permanent Secretary Pius Bigirimana is Friday set to launch two new books in Kampala, medications Chimp Corps report.

The book documents the conceptual as well as implementation processes for the recovery of Northern Uganda from the socio-economic destructive upheavals of the Lord’s Resistance Army war.

“The narrative constructs a chronological presentation of the breakout of the war through the various development frameworks targeted at bringing the Acholi-Lango region, Karamoja and Teso land to levels up to par with the rest of the country,” Bigirimana told this website on Thursday evening in an interview.

The book starts with an introduction to the Northern war and its woes before delving into the challenges and milestones in pacifying the area.

It also discusses Humanitarian Relief – Northern Uganda Social Action Fund I and an Exposition on Pre-Peace, Recovery and Development Plan Initiatives.

Youth empowerment

The second book titled, “Youth Livelihood”:  A Model for Empowering Youth in the Developing World, outlines steps to undertake when implementing a nationwide fund programme to finance self-empowerment entrepreneurship by youth under the auspices of a national framework by the Government, a donor agency or any other stakeholder.

Shs 43 billion has so far been released by the Ministry and disbursed to the youth under the Youth Livelihood Program.

The objective of the programme, according to Bigirimana, is to provide the youth with marketable vocational skills and tool kits for self employment and job creation.

Since the launch of the youth livelihood programme in January 24, 2014, at least 80,162 youths have been empowered to create their own sources of livelihood.
