COVID_19 response in rural Uganda

Dear Our beloved donors

This project has trained 30 LGBTQ individuals in both financial literacies, baking and bakery management, and is allowing them to be self-sufficient with a steady income, 02 participants that we recently trained have been employment at Kiddawalime bakery and we hope they will have the opportunity to rise out of poverty and improve their well-being in this corona virus pandemic 

We have so far encountered a Challenge which include 

Demand: There is still high demand from members to get trained and yet the organization had only budgeted for 30 participants, we preferred the small number because it’s easy to train and also monitor progress so as to evaluate the effectiveness of the training and that’s why we selected 15 participants for a one-day training. The project impacted at least 30 LGBT people only in Mbarara district leaving other districts behind. With other support, we hope to extend the program to other districts in western Uganda. Ie in kabale, Ibanda, Kasese, Rukungiri, Bushenyi all found in western uganda 

we will contiune to update you on any progress. 

 

Warm Regards.
