Challenge

The current youth unemployment rate for the youth aged 18-30 years stands at 13.3% in Uganda (Uganda Bureau of Statistics) which comes as a result of insufficient employable skills. 1.2 million youth in Uganda between the ages of 15 and 29 are idle according to the state of Uganda Population report. This has exposed the youth to economic hardship which makes their future quite unclear. This project will focus on, creation of a positive mindset and enhancement of the capacity of 125 idle youth.

Solution

The proposed project will provide onsite training for the 125 idle youth in Madi Okollo with a focus; first on mindset change, business opportunity identification, business development and management, life skills including decision making, and group management. The training will also address cross-cutting issues including STIs and drug misuse. In a group of five, the 125 youth will be facilitated to start and manage their quick maturing business.

Long-Term Impact

125 idle youth with relevant knowledge and skills managing their own businesses (self-employed), which will provide income good enough to provide for themselves and their families.
