Summary

Mentoring 25 Ugandan young adults into innovators who are highly skilled and who have experienced positive life-changing awakening processes that will lead them to rational analyses of their own attitudes and actions; and of the existing social, cultural, economic and political relationships in their communities. Their experiential learning from the analyses will motivate them to take action against poverty and improve standards of living for at least 250 people living in 50 Ugandan households.

Challenge

Our project location, Greater Northern Uganda, is the poorest in Uganda. It hosts over 9 million people of whom 41 percent of those aged above 15 years are illiterate. Millions in the region live in poverty and deprivation - 36% live below the poverty line; 64% of children are deprived of having three meals a day; 39% of a visit to health facilities when they are ill; and 65% of those of school going age an education. Many are unable to access essential goods and services and meet basic needs.

Solution

Our mentored innovators will proactively innovate, initiate, and facilitate processes that will lead to improved standards of living of benefiting smallholder farming households in Greater Northern Uganda. This will cause there to be sufficient provision of public services for benefiting communities; and benefiting households will afford their basic needs. Poverty is caused by deprivation and poverty is the cause of deprivation. Our project intends to break the cycle of this chilling reality.

Long-Term Impact

Standards of living will improve for households of at least 70 percent of those mentored and of others within their communities that come into contact with them. This is because benefiting households will actively engage in agricultural production for dietary diversity and nutrition, income generation and environmental conservation; they will improve their social and economic well-being; and programme graduates will participate in public discourse and will will lobby for better public services.
