Over fifty percent of Africa`s young men and women fail to turn their knowledge, technical and professional skills, talents and experiences into career progress, effective employment, lucrative businesses and fulfilling lives. One major reason is that while they have these hard skills, they lack the soft skills necessary for finding work, retaining jobs, starting successful micro, small or medium sized businesses, surpassing life’s dilemmas, and taking advantage of available opportunities.

What People are Saying (Testimonials)


We are on a continuous journey of helping people reach their full potential with our services. You too can be part of this exciting journey towards success.


Meet Naasir, a second year student of Nkumba University.
Meeting ROUTE completely changed Naasir’s life. Through our skilling program and mentoring he was able to write an outstanding CV, excel in a job interview and secure a job.

“Courtesy of the two trainings I received from ROUTE in, “How to Write a Compelling CV” and “Tactics for Succeeding at a Job Interview”, I applied for a job and passed the interview. I now have a part-time job. I’m indebted to ROUTE for the skills I acquired. I will definitely come for more skills”.

“I was extremely shy at making oral presentations in class and even talking to my lecturers. Plus, my written communication was poor. All this changed after a training in ROUTE on,” Communication Skills”. The training was practical and interactive, the trainer was professional yet, sensitive to our needs. The delivery was also fun. I have learned to speak confidently and my writing skills have greatly improved. – Ruth, first year student, Nkumba University, Entebbe


What I have learnt during this training, I never leant if at secondary school or here at university. The skills I have learnt here will help me to turn my next internship into a job

I have been hearing about Skilling Young Adults from my campus sisters and brothers. I have now listened to what you are doing. I want to make a plea. Please also consider adding research on to your list of training. Research is a very big challenge at our university. It is not a problem only in Kyambogo university but also in other universities

ROGERS ARIBAREBA

What I have experience through attending the training on work-related skills is something unique, very different from what U have experienced in the past. I can now write a good CV, I know what to do and what not to do at work. When it comes to business ideas, I have leant that the first one that comes into my mind is not necessarily the best one.

TTEERO NICHOLAS JULIUS

Although I am not a student at Kyambogo University, when I heard the announcement about this course in my church, I knew immediately that it was an important one to attend. What I have learnt on this course is of vital importance for me and I believe for everyone. I will carry this message to my friends so that they can also benefit from this course. I feel a sense of responsibility to the message to my brothers and sisters.

TINKASIIMIRE ANDREW

I have leant the importance of self-awareness, of knowing my personal strengths and weakness, and the strength that comes from turning weaknesses into opportunities. I have leant how to be smart so that I can get everything I need

“Being a medical practitioner, I thought I had all it takes to practice my profession, until I received a training on, “Professionalism”. It changed the conduct of my practice. There are so many things I thought didn’t matter which actually do, and they matter a lot. I now realize that one can practice a profession without practicing professionalism. I’m now skilled for both and feel that the progression of my career is on course. Thanks to ROUTE for the training and to our Faculty for organizing it.”Dr. Caleb, Makerere School of Public Health

“The training on, “How to Write a Compelling CV” was extremely insightful. It was an eyeopener. I kept wondering why I wasn’t being invited for interviews despite writing so many CVs. Now I understand why. I’m confident that the next CV I write will get me to the interview room. The timing of the training was spot-on.” Juliet, Final year student, Kyambogo University, Kampala
