IGNITE Initiatives is a registered not-for-profit organisation based in Kampala, Uganda that empowers youth to realise, grow and maximise their Leadership potential and use it to champion change in their communities. Through our life changing programs, young people are helped to identify and maximize their potential. They are supported to awaken the potential that lies within them, discover their uniqueness and special abilities that make them stand out and help them gain confidence in being who God made them to be, thus enabling them to be the change they want to see in their communities. That, in our view, is leadership. The trend today is to hear a lot of complaints and tales of dissatisfaction from the youth on how there are no opportunities around them, how unfair the world is and how the government is not doing what they should do to create a better world for them. While we maintain that the government has a responsibility to its citizens, we strongly believe, like Mahatma Ghandi said, “be the change you want to see in the world”. We also believe as John F Kennedy said, Ask not what your country can do for you, instead ask what you can do for your country.
