We inspire students to solve community problems as engineers.

Post-conflict regions in northern Uganda have a lack of access to quality education accompanied by high levels of youth unemployment.  Yiya! increases the resilience of students in chronically stressed communities by exposing them to engineering design challenges where they need to use math and science topics to solve real and urgent community problems.  The project-based engineering modules have been developed in consultation with teachers and local community members.

This is a very special innovation in secondary education that will make our curriculum stronger. This should be incorporated in the National syllabus.

We are now qualified to teach our students to fix problems as engineers do, I am happy I was selected as an educator from my school.
