The Career Imagination Program (CIP) Uganda was founded in 2012 by a group of Ugandan Youths at the OECD summit 2012 following the
realization that world over, the skills gap in the education system has not helped to address the unemployment problem. Uganda has the world’s second youngest population where 74% are below the age of 30 years but with 6.3 million youth between the ages of 18 and 30
(UBOS statistical abstract 2015). The Youth unemployment rate is also placed at 19.7% however the UNHS 2013/2014 figures further show that the rural areas with about 77.4% of the population constitute 89.3% of Uganda’s national poverty. The Career Imagination Program has come a long way since its launch in June 2012. We currently work with 20 schools within Uganda, and over 30,000 students have directly beneﬁtted from practical skills training during our 5 years of operation and we are committed to expanding our model.
In 2012, Jonan Kato made a documentary about Education and skills in Uganda that won an award. The awards were organized by the Organization for Economic Corporation and development – OECD. This was the third OECD Global youth competition and was themed ‘Education and Skills’
During the Forum, Jonan Participated in The OECD idea factory – skills and together with a team of Experts gave Birth to Career Imagination Program (CIP). Co-founders include Johannes de Gues, Prof. Jorge Cardoso, and Katherine Acheson.
