Summary

The project seeks to employ 30 girls at Marianne Business outlet. Since its inception, the foundation has already trained 150 girls who drop out due to challenging individual circumstances. However, most of them dont get start ups to begin self-employment. This project seeks to procure 30 industrial sewing machines to employ the girls who will finish their skilling program early next year 2023, these will also get involved in producing Pads for commercial purposes so that they solve challenges.

Challenge

In rural Uganda, many families struggle to pay for food, shelter and other basic needs. Education often gets prioritized last, and girls do not receive an education if their families cannot afford it. As a result, there are still high rates of school drop outs and unemployment among girls in our community. We have met an urgent need to provide employable and sustainable skills training and now desire to follow through with these employment opportunities.

Solution

We have provided skills training to 30 girls and more girls will be trained in the coming year. We want to buy 30 industrial sewing machines, develop our skills training center and our business outlet, and employ the girls who are graduating from our program. These girls will make reusable pads, school uniforms, school bags and African wear to be sold in our community business outlet, at our Foundation and in local schools.

Long-Term Impact

This will lead to income accessibility to the employed girls, creating sustainability for them to be able to save money, pay for expenses, take care of their families, and solve any future financial challenges.
