Uta Wayu Foundation has worked with young people and their families to advocate and reinforce the values of hard work, responsibility, accountability, and leadership development. To this effect, UWF has sponsored Uta Wayu soccer club for the last five years. This is projected to be expanded to other youth groups from Uta Wayu area. The rational for this idea is that, when you keep these young men engaged, you indirectly keep them of various troubles and create more conscious young men.
In addition, the youth both here in the United States and Oromia require abundance of role models and mentors. In Oromia, the culture of volunteerism and giving back to community is less practiced. UWF work to create a network volunteer programs to help the community, while revising a dying culture. UWF believes engaging the youth is the best way to revisit the values and effects of volunteerism as self-lessely displayed by our forefathers of Arse Basic School Movement.
