Supporting Youth to be become entrepreneurs is a collective responsibility

Kitovu Mobile remains at the forefront of supporting the youth to become entrepreneurs through sustainable modern farming. During this period 62 (47M, 15F) youth from our catchment area convened in Kirumba Sub county  to  attend  a two   day training on dairy  Cattle management. The training aimed at equipping the teenagers with skills and knowledge of managing dairy cows on zero grazing system as a means to enable them boost their income levels and diversifying their income generating activities.

The topics covered included among others, selection of a good dairy cow, feeding of dairy cows on zero grazing, routine management of dairy cows and making of silage.

It was noted that majority expressed interest of undertaking dairy cow as core project though were limited with resources. After a thorough assessment Kitovu Mobile was able to give out ten dairy cows to the qualifying beneficiaries. To ensure a quick multiplier effect, the first beneficiaries will be expected to pass on a heifer to another youth in the group before they can fully own the given dairy cow. Given the dairy cows given out were in calf we anticipate an average of 15 youth to have benefited from this project in a period of two years only.

We have hope that this project will benefit the youth to overcome unemployment and the rampant poverty in the community.  “Let’s join hands and support the young generation to cause social change”

It is our Joy to see the out of School youth advancing through IGAs

Quite often we have seen the youth under our support making high strides towards achieving their goals. During this period follow up of youth in their respective homes to witness their projects in real situation was the major activity.  Through observation it was noted majority had started their own income generating activities ranging from vegetable growing, establishment of nursery beds, coffee growing and banana management. Among the many, MK testified that from his vegetable garden he was able to earn 95 dollars within one season as net income. MK specialized in growing vegetables with major focus on cabbages. He further said that is aiming at establishing a green house to enable him grow crops through the year without fear of dry spell as a result of unfavorable weather changes. His ambition as well is to see people of his community have access to good dietary foods at affordable price

In response to the national priorities under the Sustainable Development Goals, Kitovu Mobile continued to support youth through Income generating Activities in their groups. Through the various training and field visits held the youth and the surrounding communities came to acknowledge that farming is a process that can be learnt and improved upon with experience and as a result a gradual attitude change was observed.

 

443 (112f, 331m) youth from the targeted areas received support visits twice during this reporting period. It was observed that majority of the youth had engaged themselves in growing  passion fruits, maize, beans, ground nuts, vegetables and coffee. It was observed that income from the sale of their produce ranged between, $ 20 to $ 600 per season.

 

With their incomes they had struggled to acquire some assets, for instance 6 trainees bought cows, 11 bicycles, 5 building materials, 18 piggery, 11 coffee nurseries, 18 bicycles, 5 engaged in making chips. This applied to youths who had spent four to three years on the project.  65% of the youth who had joined the groups for only one year were able to meet their personal requirements.

 

On a similar development, it was observed that the youth did not only grow in terms of assets and incomes but their quality of life generally had improved.

 

 In conclusion we acknowledge all the support from friends and well wishers behind this great work. Without your support we are handicapped and majority of this category is likely to suffer the most. “Together we can”
