EYOTAB is Empowering Youth through Talent Building in Eastern and Northern Uganda
EYOTAB is a Talent Development project whose intention, from July 2023 to June 2024, is to identify talented youth, in the creative arts and provide them with skills and mentorship that can ready them for the labor market.
About 150 young Creatives in Teso and Lango Sub-regions will be mentored in music, comedy, videography, graphic designing, and public speaking.
The project is led by Napoleone Ehmah, one of Uganda’s most accomplished entertainers with expertise in StandUp Comedy, Events MC’ing, Events Management, Public Speaking, and Creative Writing. He is also a former Teacher.
The project is run under the Christian Children Outreach Ministry (CCORM), an all-inclusive community-based organization formed with the aim of creating an environment that can help young people succeed in life, identification and nurturing of talent, and build a strong social fiber that helps them thrive and teaching Christian values to raise morally upright youth.
EYOTAB Training Hub and offices are located on Plot 24 Esabu Road, 500 meters off the Soroti-Lira Highway. The branch off to EYOTAB is exactly opposite TedWills Bravo Hotel, along Soroti-Lira Road.
EYOTAB has a fully equipped Audio Production Studio which also doubles as an Audio Production Training Room, with extra computers for the learners to get hands-on.
EYOTAB also has a fully equipped Video Production Room which also doubles as a Video Editing Training Room. In addition, EYOTAB has a Green Room for film production using advanced editing art. EYOTAB also has a large compound which comes in handy, especially for film production trainees who may need more space for the selection of video scenery.
EYOTAB has a huge array of Video and Audio Equipment like professional video cameras, Guitar, Piano, Audio Mixers, Live Video Mixers, and Videography lights, all of which make EYOTAB a one-stop center for Creatives to learn their trade and for the production of elite video and audio content.
EYOTAB has an administrative structure, with the facility led by the Program Manager, assisted by an Administrative Officer, an Accountant, Two field coordinators, an Information Technology manager, and a host of Creative Arts trainers who help guide the learners.
