1. “Youth against election violence campaign” which was jointly carried out with Uganda Youth Network (UYONET) in 2011 aimed at sensitizing youth not to be violent towards the general elections of 2011. This sports initiative was carried out throughout the four divisions of Kampala district and attracted over 1000 youths into the engagements.
2. Organized the National sports conference 2011 that brought on board all sports personalities from the various sports backgrounds of media, academia, leadership, active and passive athletes’ amongst others to share and deliberate on the status of sports in the Country. This conference was opened by the state minister for finance Hon: Jachan Omachi and was closed by a representative from the Uganda Olympic committee Mr. Ssemanda Collins.
6. The National civil society sports league which is so far one of SEFU’s outstanding programmes since inception was launched on 24th February 2013 and was to create a platform for NGOs to closely interact for mutual benefits during this sports meet so as to reduce the gaps between various organizations, this helps young organizations to connect with those that have existed for some time and as well create a platform for creating partnerships and connections.
