Challenge

The population of Bududa is exploding with the average family having eight children. The schools in the area are overstretched and do not provide their students with an adequate basic education or vocational skills, leading to rising young-adult unemployment and family poverty. These problems are not going resolve themselves, and other factors such as AIDS, landslides and extreme poverty are only exacerbating the situation.

Solution

We provide supplemental basic education to orphans and vocational courses to young adults in tailoring, carpentry, brick making, nursery-teacher training, and computing, and hairdressing. Our students leave our vocational school with skills to earn their own living. 97.8% of our graduates are now employed or in further education. We help young adults in rural Uganda to get vocational training so they can earn a living.

Long-Term Impact

Our project gives children and young adults in an extremely poor part of rural Uganda a chance to break the relentless cycle of poverty and make their own way in the world. Our graduates go on to get jobs, form their own businesses, and support themselves and their families. This means they will not be dependent on aid agencies. Our project empowers them to lead their own independent lives.
