YTB Impact on a rural community.

YTB Global aims to make a difference by making an impact on rural communities. Introducing YTB into rural communities led to greater youth engagement and greater youth-community development. This is an "after" picture. Learn what happened below and see the journey from before to now.

10 months youth-adult partnering > 1 classroom

YTB Uganda's youth-adult partnership creates new classrooms, impacting young learners. Collaboration spans youth-adult-professional co-producers, benefiting economically disadvantaged families. Engaging the community and fostering collaboration, ISSB technology is harnessed to reconstruct a rural school in Mukono, Uganda. Previous classrooms were wrecked by spring 2022's rainstorms.

2/200/2 Crochet

Amidst Uganda's 2022 Ebola crisis and subsiding COVID-19, two mothers, 200 learners, and 2 schools were impacted. Eager to keep youth engaged, two crochet-proficient mothers collaborated with YTB Global. A train-the-trainer program ensued, sparking community involvement and cross-generational collaboration in crochet skills development.

YTB Community Cleanup - youth ARE!

Observe the empowered youth wearing YTB shirts and gloves, one sporting a self-crocheted hat. They're community assets, earning rewards for their impactful contributions – shirts, gloves, crochet and school supplies. Their enthusiasm to create change is matched by the essential acknowledgment. YTB empowers them to "Y-T-B-The-Change."

YTB ISSB Classroom
May 2022 brought destruction to a rural Ugandan school due to a storm. Lessons were held outdoors, rain or shine. Opting for cost-effective sustainability, we embraced Interlocking Stabilized Soil Block (ISSB) Technology. ISSBs facilitate swift, affordable construction. Youth, engaged through a train-the-trainer initiative under YTB, learned to produce and lay these blocks. A unified community transformed into co-producers, assets, and builders, resurrecting the school.
