Funded by the David and Lucile Packard Foundation and implemented by UNFPA in partnership with Communication for Development Foundation Uganda, Reproductive Health Uganda and Straight Talk Foundation, the Youth Enterprise Model (YEM) aims to ensure young people are not only building employable skills, but are also gaining knowledge and safe decision-making behaviours related to their sexual and reproductive health. Since the project began in 2012, YEM has reached more than 963,000 adolescents and young people, helping shape better health-seeking and financially responsible behaviours.

This report is a collection of stories from service providers, peer educators and the young people who benefit from YEM and are witnessing its positive impact in action.
