Challenge

The current levels of poverty/youth unemployment problem in Uganda especially in urban centers like mbale, has led to the youth indulging in all forms of vices namely Robbery /theft, drug abuse,prostitution leading to increased cases of HIV/AIDS.The project will provide a remedy for this youth not only to be self sustaining and to fight poverty, but to also engage there energy in positive activities and self employment in the long run knowing Mbale has great potential in farming.

Solution

Training the youth in modern agricultural skills and providing hands on experience on the farm such as the use of minimal land for large production,resource mobilization, poultry keeping, piggery,vegetable farming,site selection,harvesting, animal husbandry,ago-marketing skills and value added production will be key in yielding results.

Long-Term Impact

The project aims at training 30 young people in our first year allowing them to be self reliant and able to come out of the unemployment circle,fight poverty and in return be able to provide for their families health and well being.
