Kampala Junior Team (KJT) is a registered community based Organization for disadvantaged children, situated in Kisenyi II Parish, Kampala Central Division. It is registered with Uganda Youth Football
Association (UYFA) under Federation of Uganda Football Association (FUFA) to develop youth football from the grass root in Uganda.
It was formed in 2003 to identify and develop talent among kids aged 5 to 18 years that come from disadvantaged backgrounds. We started with eight (8) children and currently we have signed up Four Hundred (400) children both boys and girls who comes from all parts of Uganda, 300 of whom are Orphans/street kids while 100 have both parents. We organize them into sports and other activities to avoid crime, AIDS/HIV and to promote their education. We have been successful in assimilating the kids into society in a positive behavior.
Since you're focused on building a team of youth at your organization I encourage you to expand your thinking to build a team of youth serving organizations based in Africa that would work collectively to generate the ideas, volunteers and dollars you each need to innovate more and better ways to help youth own program have an impact on the youth you serve. This Ning site can be a meeting place where you do that team-building and where you can borrow ideas from what I and others are doing in other places.
