Life time Skills equipping

By Mbarara Rise |

Donors, Here is our skills update 

How years and numbers fly, we never imagined reaching this higher, we have close to 250 LGBTIQ+ people demanding for the cake baking skills training.


With 364 cake baking beneficiaries in May 2022, we added 40 participants that were trained in August making it 404

Beneficiaries since 2016 when the cake baking skills empowerment was initiated. Such a milestone.

On the 18th and 19th of August 2022, we conducted a two days cake baking empowerment skills training for 20 LGT persons at generation suites in Mbarara district found in western Uganda. Selected participants gathered are six lesbians, Ten gay men, four transgender women.


On the 21st and 22nd of August 2022, we also conducted a two days cake baking empowerment skills training for 20 participants in Ibanda district at Ibanda Resort. Selected participants were ten gay men, seven transgender women, one lesbian and two bisexual men.


We re-partnered with kiddawalime bakery, a renowned company bakery here in western Uganda to host our intern members who have been equipped with adequate practical cake baking skills and bakery management.
During our trainings both in Mbarara and Ibanda MRF’s director of programs Miss Janet mutesi welcomed participants and briefed them on project concept and description of the cake baking project and the need to achieve the Five projects’ objectives like we have done in the past years. during our economic empowerment skills trainings, beneficiaries acquired knowledge and skills in cake baking and bakery management, improved household income, long term baking skills, foster self- reliance and have increased job creation.

Currently Maria and Mugisha our volunteers are supervising beneficiaries to enable them use the time allocated to benefit from the internships and offer capacity support visits to each beneficiary
