Challenge

Victims of war & violence (especially women &youths) in Uganda occupy a low status and lack economic independence. There is lack of creativity and entrepreneurship in the education system; producing more job seekers than creators. There are many school dropouts, early marriages, much domestic violence, teenage-single parents and destitution. All these groups of vulnerable people have potential but lack opportunities to harness them. There is a need for efforts to enable their empowerment.

Solution

TEA will give victims opportunity and direction by not only rehabilitating and training them, but also occupying and empowering them with work and earnings. Most existing interventions react rather than address the causes of victimization; leaving victims as vulnerable as before. After training them for free, they will have work placements in community supported initiatives such as nursery schools, salons and horticultural gardens to earn a living and support others.

Long-Term Impact

TEA envisions changing women and youth's social-economic statuses and attitudes towards them. Since women and youths are disproportionately victimized, they will be enabled to face injustice with the psychology of attained economic power. Empowerment gives hooks than fish and is the best answer to victims' suffering.
