|Book Review - Success is Around the Corner Written by H. E. Boney M. Katatumba|
Above all, this book is dedicated to the people I think need it most- the youths of the world. For in them lies the key to our future. Hopefully, they can adopt the philosophy I share in this book to create an even better world for all.
I have been fortunate to have travelled to over a hundred different countries as Chairman G77 CCI. It is my conclusion that the youths are basically the same the world over. Their aspirations are often ignored as they struggle to find a niche in this sometimes cold and difficult world. Against the social, educational and political imbalances of societies in which they find themselves, they battle on, ever determined to make their voices heard.

|Coming to Uganda: Mirembe Campbell's Surge to the Top|
Of course I am an asset to Uganda. That is my motherland; the home of my people, and the country where all of my mother's people were born. I will be travelling to UG in January and will be working directly with children in the village of Katante among other villages. Katante is important to me, as this is the home of my mother's people. I will give back to UG as much as possible. I know how proud the UG community is of me, and I thank them so much for their constant support...

I will use the analogy of a family head who leaves 500/= at home for the days needs and on return peers over the available supper and asks "I do not see any meat on this plate. What is happening to this home?"
|Northern Uganda on the Oprah Show|
Ever since Oprah heard about the genocide happening in Sudan and Uganda's young nightwalkers, she says she's had trouble sleeping at night.
"There is a holocaust going on right now in Africa," Oprah says. "Everybody who hears it today, can no longer say, 'I didn't know that was going on.' Maybe you feel like you have no real power to change anything, but the truth is, you are the only hope that all of these people have."
Oprah hopes that viewers will "rise up against the madness" and help stop the atrocities happening in Africa. "If we don't listen and do something now, we're all going to have blood on our hands... If this was happening to your child, wouldn't you want the world to help?" she asks.
To lend a helping hand support, Oprah urges you to support organizations working in Africa.

The project has further expanded to include male youth.

|Ugandan Artists: Meet Eria Nsubuga 'Sane'|
"My interests in art dwell around what is around me. Nature, as well as day to day activities of the common man are my major sources of inspiration. I delight in simplicity, and as a result a lot of my work has been linked to naïveté. I however make no apologies for being true to myself."
