Started by Asiimwe Desire in 2019, the You Can Initiative aims to empower, mentor and motivate pupils and students to embrace education (formal and vocational). YCI also works towards instilling values and virtues in children from a young age so that they can grow into informed citizens with a defined picture of who and what they would like to be.

The main focus of this initiative is to inspire and mentor the young girls into realizing the best version of themselves and helping them grow into independent citizens of integrity.
