Digital Literacy Stars

The Digital Literacy Holiday Program offers a rare opportunity for youth in school to come over to our centers and practice their computer skills over the holiday. Their study plan includes writing a blog about their personal plans and visions, a powerpoint presentation on current affairs and developing a personal annual budget using spreadsheets. Over the past two weeks, we have seen an immense amount of energy and learning effort and we have some really nice stories we want to share with you today.


My name is Sebalamu Musa. I am a student in Senior Four class at St Paul Senior Secondary School in Lweza. I am happy about doing digital literacy during my first term holiday at Youth Rising in Kitende. Digital Literacy means a lot to me because I am learning how to use a computer and computers are important in our daily lives. I want to become a computer teacher to teach children in my community how to use computers. I see myself become a computer wizard and be able to do good with my out of the ordinary computer skills.


My name is Nassali Josephine. I am a Senior two student at Kitende Secondary School. I am so happy about studying computer at Youth Rising. I love computers because of how I see them make life easy for us. It is not only easy for us to make receipts and form accountability easily because of computers but also helps in making records, reporting and making good presentations with computers. I want to grow into a successful professional doctor and set up a maternity ward for women. I know computers have a big role in helping me achieve these dreams. I love that this class has awakened me into becoming a better citizen for my community. I don’t miss the life skills sessions on Fridays where we learn a lot about health and service towards our community.



My name is Sebunya Patrick. I am an advanced level student at Kitende Secondary School. I major in Physics, Economics, Mathematics, and ICT. I would love to become a civil engineer and improve the science and technology of people in my community. Digital Literacy is very important to me because it is not only a source of employment to the specialists but it helps in research and makes communication easy. I believe my personal visions and goals will be met now that I have a hub to not only learn about computers but also access them more often.



My name is Kirumira Denis. I am a primary six student at All Saints Primary school, Lweza. I like our community because we are surrounded by Lake Victoria and I love swimming and playing netball in my free time. I would like to become a computer hacker and a businessman when I grow up. I decided to take a holiday class for computer because I believe computer knowledge will help me in documenting and keeping records for my business.

Youth Rising wishes the very best to all of you. We believe that all your dreams will come true.
