This project will provide basic literacy, numeracy, tailoring and cookery skills training to empower less privileged people in rural Nyamwamba- Uganda. Many people do not have access to equipped facilities to receive training in valuable trades and skills. These people are often deprived of various learning and income-earning opportunities that could improve their social status and living conditions. The project will help people develop their livelihoods through education and skills education.
The low level of literacy in Nyamwamba division is a serious impediment for the area's development. 57% of the area's populations are illiterate and most of them live in rural areas. The mountainous terrain further compounds the challenge to source learning materials to the most remote areas. This Project will give an opportunity to vulnerable people to go through a 6 months' training on basic literacy, numeracy and 5 months tailoring and cookery skills training.
The people will go through 6 months on basic literacy, numeracy and 5 months-long tailoring and cookery skills training and a week-long financial literacy training. By the end of the implementation period, the beneficiaries will be able to read, write, and work with numbers. It is hoped that this will help them find jobs and improve the budget planning within their households. Further to this, they will be able to make their own clothes, which will have a positive effect on their family finances
The project will provide skills for life to the people. The project will provide people with employable skills needed for self-reliance and sustenance.
