Started in 2008 by STEPHEN KAPERE, Youth for Charity Missions International (YOFOCHM) is a registered Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) in Uganda.
STEPHEN KAPERE was inspired to startup the organization as a response to the challenges young people in his community were facing including unemployment, immorality, illiteracy, inequalities and others.
Growing up in a society of inequalities, and faced with much poverty, Stephen felt the need to mobilize, empower and engage young people into life changing programs that would add value unto their lives for the betterment of our communities and for God. Stephen then initiated community programs and projects in leadership, charity, evangelism, girl/women empowerment, skills training and children education sponsorships that have to date been of national importance.
As much need to reach out increased, and with little funding to support his team execute a lot of activities at the organization, Stephen resigned his media job to fully commit to the organization. Stephen is a committed Activist with a great passion for God & Community – Based Initiatives in Uganda. And over the years, he is supporting & creating opportunities for young people in Uganda dedicating his life towards eliminating inequality, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.
