The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA)’s Live Your Dream Campaign is meant to inspire action towards a better life for young people and women and promote the well-being of the entire family. Under the With You(th) pillar of the campaign, UNFPA in partnership with Reach A Hand Uganda (RAHU) established a high quality and powerful conversation platform titled, “Live Your Dream Moment.” This is a two-hour conversational platform that aims at inspiring and informing young people through engaging non-traditional actors and icons to share their personal experiences on different social issues that affect young people in Uganda.
At the “Live Your Dream Moment”, you will listen to your favourite icons share their powerful and inspirational stories on how they have, as young people, succeeded in overcoming everyday challenges – to live their dream.
