Fontes Foundation Uganda’s Regional Coordinator, Michael Pletscher, recently finished his master’s thesis on youth unemployment in urban Uganda. The thesis explores the reasons for youth unemployment in Uganda and how Fontes Foundation’s Youth Programme can be adjusted and/or improved to fight this problem even better in the future. The research is based on Michael’s personal experiences from working for Fontes Foundation Uganda, supported by academic literature and focus group discussions with Core Course students from Potentiam Youth Centre, as well as comparisons with other youth programmes in Uganda. For his thesis, Michael received very good feedback and an excellent grade from his supervisors.
