About Us

Welcome to Youth Sport Uganda

Established in 2006, Youth Sport Uganda (YSU) is a registered Sport for development organisation based in Kampala. YSU offers sporting opportunities for the underprivileged youth in Uganda. We develop social skills and confidence of disadvantaged young boys and girls from the slums, through working with school, and out of school sports programmes. YSU believes in the power of sports to foster change in our communities, and thus incorporate the innate sports values of tolerance and equality.

Our Vision

YSU works in partnership with schools and communities within the slums to promote key objectives of the organization. YSU places the schools and communities at the centre of development in the belief that only through strong communities can a household develop and manage its natural resources, provide adequate education and vocational training, address people's needs for health care and disease prevention, achieve economic well-being and live in peace.

Our Mission

To offer educational, health and life skills opportunities to vulnerable youths in Uganda through harnessing the power of sports.
