Mr. Amaglo has a strong conviction that if the people in his community do not benefit from the knowledge and skills imparted in him by the university, then his education is useless. To him, it is, therefore, a way of giving back to the communities and he sees this as a responsibility of every young man and woman who had the benefit of getting formal education especially in a higher institution of study.

As stated in his slogan “REJUVENATION”, he has stated emphatically that he has the necessary strategies in place to revive the youth front.
The aim of this mobile health screening is to identify and alleviate Non Communicable diseases which for sometime now, are topping the charts of disease among adults.
The team would constitute medical doctors, nurses, dietitians, public health professionals in different fields to create awareness of some vital information on lifestyle modification and prevention of some conditions which are common nowadays. It is necessary to check one’s health vital signs especially blood pressure, blood sugar level in order to prevent hypertension, diabetes, stroke and the like.
He also assured that this exercise will be carried out using current and updated equipments such as body fat analyzer, electronic weighing scale, sphygmomanometer which are used for checking the fat contents in the body, the visceral fats, the muscle and body mass index.
With lifestyle modification, it is assured that majority of these people will either be free from developing Non-communicable diseases or it will improve the health of those who already have. To achieve this, there is focus on two key areas which are diet and physical activity. This will be mainly achieved through education and evidence-based counseling as well as periodic check ups.
Furthermore, there are plans in the offing to form keep fit clubs at every branch. This, he believes is also another way of bringing the youth together for victory.
Mr Amaglo is convinced that, to have a smooth running of these projects, the party structure must be made to work hence the branch youth organizers are going to be empowered to supervise the dream projects.
He hopes and knows these projects will unite and promote togetherness towards achieving goals.
