At least 2000 out of school teen mothers in Kisiwa location were denied second chance to school as a result of giving birth while in schools. Location's culture dictates that once a girl give birth is regarded mature & shouldn't get any parents' support; amid high stigma attached to admitting girls who have babies back into school. Teen mothers are wallowing in abject poverty and too often fail meeting their own and children's food & nutrition needs. This project affects 50 such teen mothers.


UWG hires trainers that are highly skilled in Kuroiler Chicken Enterprise (KCE), and engage them in training & equipping 50 passionate out of school teen mothers with skills & hands-on techniques in Kuroiler Chicken Enterprise (KCE) via intensive & practical training workshops at UWG's center. 50 trained teens are intensively mentored by hired mentors that are successful in KCE, prior to supporting them with bundle of capital resources & follow-up expertise to set-up and effectively manage KCE.

Long-Term Impact

The project empowers 50 out of school teen mothers to overcome poverty & be fully self-reliant by improving their income generating capacities, nutritional security and food sufficiency through Kuroiler Chicken Enterprise. Initiated Kuroiler Chicken Enterprise generates modest incomes for the 50 teen mothers, allowing them to come one step closer to financial independence. The 50 teen mothers will also regularly include highly recommended eggs & white chicken meat in their own & children's diet.
