Department of Youth

The Youth Department is part of the Department for Women, Children and Social Welfare. Its main purpose is to stay in contact with and care about Karagwe’s Youths. Therefore, the department visits the Youths all over the diocese in their parishes or at schools and arranges seminars. The department is led by Mis. Axsa Gabagambi.

Most of the parishes in Karagwe offer meetings and events for the Youths: During choir sessions or bible studies children and teenagers come together and share their time. The meetings are conducted by Youth leaders or pastors in the parishes or districts.
