I am Albert Juma a Congolese refugee, I was born in D.R.Congo North Kivu Rutshuru district, Ishasha village on 11th02/1998 in the family of 4 people and I am the second born in our family.
I started my primary school in ishasha village and after I joined my secondary school in the same village and finished in 2015
In2015 I was forced to leave my country due to the war conflict, it was after completing my senior six.
After reaching the refugee camp, we faced many challenges; poverty, unemployment and many. It is when we get united as youth to start small contribution, where we could sell out a small part of our food received from W.F.P in order to raise money for starting loan and saving activities., I was determined to find innovative ways to contribute to the creation of business, it is out of this determination that I have been able to start YOBAC that is working with people to develop innovative ways of empowering youth and women to start sustainable business, and and encouraging children to go to school.
