Uganda Martyrs University has been applauded for spearheading projects that are aimed at empowering students and the neighboring communities.

Augustine Omara Okurut, the Secretary General Uganda National Commissioner for UNESCO  made the remarks during the closing ceremony of the third phase of the Student Training Entrepreneurial Promotion (STEP) programme and handover of the project to Uganda Martyrs University Nkozi on 2nd September 2015.

He called on other Universities in Uganda to borrow a leaf from Uganda Martyrs University and fight unemployment in Uganda.

Student Training Entrepreneurial Promotion (STEP) is a programme that has empowered students with both theoretical and practical skills on entrepreneurship, thereby preparing them for the world of work to be job creators rather than job seekers.

The Leuphana University representative Kim Bishop who handed over the project to the University, promised continued support to STEP and encouraged more students and staff to join the programme.

The Uganda National Commission for UNESCO in conjunction with the German Commission for UNESCO and Leuphana University of Lunenburg, have implemented three phases of the Student Training Entrepreneurial Promotion (STEP) programme at Uganda Martyrs University since 2009.
