GYCO - the initiative for encouragement of the youth in northern Uganda
The organization GYCO aims to bring back self esteem, joy of life and meaningfulness to the post civil war youth in the region of northern Uganda. GYCO supports training and education of young people who will subsequently lead the constitution of the GYCO Art and Education Center locally in Gulu's civil society.
The GYCO Art and Education Center will be a place of permanent and lasting encounter between the local, northern Ugandan arts and crafts, civil society of Gulu province, and businesses and entrepreneurs.
