YOUTHS NEED EDUCATION AS WELL SKILLS TO GET GOING IN LIFE
Ugandan President, Yoweri Museveni, has called on Ugandan parents to support their children in getting education and skills that will enable them to get jobs and create wealth.
Museveni made the call while addressing the Amolatar Women Informal Enterprising Group, who paid him a courtesy call at the State House, Entebbe on Wednesday.
He told the delegation which was led by Amolatar Member of Parliament, Hon. Caroline Okau, that practical skills are more important in gaining employment.
“Education that enables one to speak English is good, but you must have skills in order to get jobs,” Museveni said.
“Get skills that the society wants or can buy easily.
“Skills are a form of wealth as they enable people to get jobs and empower one to be wealthy.”
He urged his citizens to pursue food and incomes security by creating wealth through cost effective enterprises such as animal and poultry rearing, coffee and fruit production among others.
