Challenge

Bunyiiro village is in Iganga district, Busoga sub-region in the Eastern part of Uganda where poverty levels had proved to be high at a rate of 60-70% in 2009. However, after seven years Poverty has fallen in all regions, but gains have been too slow in the poorer Northern and Eastern regions. The annual percent reduction in poverty has been almost twice as high in the Central and Western regions (7.4% and 7.9% respectively) than in the Northern and Eastern regions (3.1% and 4.7% respectively).

Solution

The increase of 70% in incomes will be achieved through training of 50 people with disabilities on how to identify more income opportunities, challenges and strategies for remedy Outcome 2. 90% increase in capacity for a group of 50 people with disabilities to manage a bakery business. Activities: Training of 50 people with disabilities in bookkeeping and leadership skills, Training of 50 people with disabilities in marketing skills, Provision of carriers for transportation of bakery products

Long-Term Impact

The general business skill training is only part of the picture. The proposed project will make a meaningful contribution in people's lives that is both broader and deeper than just acquiring new business skills. The training and practical knowledge will help to give hope to 50 people with disabilities whose lives have been damaged in the prevailing poverty. The training, provision of required tools and materials as well as marketing linkages will help the 50 people return to a sense of normalcy
