"WE CAN DO IT OURSELVES"

Restoring hope is one of the significant achievements in the past period. The youth can see beyond the agricultural support and engage themselves in other productive activities like craft making. On top of the various trainings and support to the out school youth they have gone a step ahead and start making crafts as an extra activity to supplement their income during the off season. 60% of the group members are now making crafts in form of utensil racks which they sell on the market day that comes every Friday of the week. This idea came as a result of training in Micro enterprise development that was identified to be paramount to this category of youth and passed on to them.

Using the savings from the diverse income generating projects they can now meet their day-to-day needs which include supporting their siblings with school requirements, buying supplementary foods and clothes for themselves.

Unlike in the past there is reduced redundancy among the youth and value for time. Thanks to all our supporters in this regard.
