Skilling Brings Financial Independence to Grils

Ugandan President Museveni has extended the lockdown on multiple occasions but begins to ease measures. Uganda has had one of the strictest lockdowns in Africa with only essential businesses functioning, dusk-to-dawn curfews, and bans on transportation. While the lockdown was extended, it will begin to ease as businesses including hardware shops, restaurants, wholesale stores, and others will be allowed to reopen.

Around the world, over 243 million women and girls have been subjected to sexual or physical violence in the last 12 months. SCOEN has been providing trainings against domestic violence throughout the pandemic. In their discussions with the women they work with, they have found that none of their members has been abused during the lockdown due to the education they have provided in how to respond accordingly to a situation and their economic empowerment in being able to support themselves.

However there is a need to skilling these girls. SCOEN through this project where young women especially the teenage mothers obtain practical & marketable skills training, so that they can participate in the social & economic development of the community and bring about the change that is desperately needed to fight the prevailing extreme poverty. The project is in line with the Government's Vision 2040, Specifically, it supports the Education Sector Strategic Plan 2011-2020 "Skilling Uganda." Moreover, it conforms to the SDG4.

Currently SCOEN has register 15 girls in tailoring, one for welding & metal fabrication; and have made MoUs with 2 skilling centres in the rural Bukedea.

We are so grateful toGlobalGiving and the suppoters through our project Girls Parliament to end child marriage in Uganda for their willingness to partner with us. Please accept our heartfelt gratitude to the whole team and especially to Beyond Our Borders - The Women's Foundation of Colorado for funds. We look forward to sharing the outcomes of the Project over the next few months
