Summary

This project will provide productive skills training to Child mothers in northern Uganda who cannot work outside their homes due to lack of employable skills and cultural marginalization which does not favor them to engage in any income generating activity. The project shall empower 60 young mothers with vocational skills using the modern techniques and equipment to make their products competitive in order to earn high prices in the market.

Challenge

Eighty percent of girls drop out of school by grade seven/primary seven.Typically, this age is too early for the girls to have developed a skill that will release them from the cultural strongholds that compel them to conform to traditional female roles and bind them in the cycle of economic poverty. Culture plays a role in marginalizing girl child, it favors the male gender. Where financial resources are insufficient for the entire family, the male child is always selected for education.

Solution

The project is designed to provide knowledge, skills, and abilities to a specific target group of young women in the areas of entrepreneurship, business, and vocational skills through a series of training seminars and workshops that are not currently available to them because of their remote geographic location and because of their underprivileged economic status.

Long-Term Impact

Trained women become Trainer of trainees in their community in the same field. This is because the project has not targeted all the category of young women and those outside the scope may need to learn the same skills therefore making the trained target group become TOT, hence creating more entrepreneurship opportunity. Sixty (60) young mothers trained on vocational skills and entrepreneurial skills and supported with micro income generating activities.
