Robert and Jimmy continue their mentoring journeys as the two young innovators managing our CPAR Uganda Lira Learning Centre. In addition, Robert continues to positively impact on lives of his home community in Ochelakur accessing finance to smallholder farming households. Click here to read more and to support Robert's initiative. Funding permitting, in addition, Jimmy plans to establish a welding workshop through which he will offer welding apprenticeships to youths. Click here to read more and to support  Jimmy's initiative.

Sharon failed to get employment as a teacher due to many reasons, including low pay. She innovated and established a shop, but the shop has since gone burst primarily because of her absence as she did development work. She plans to establish a restaurant.

Vicky used to deal in 2nd hand clothes, but her business went burst due to her absence as her time was taken up doing part-time paid development work. She has decided to become a full-time medium scale rice farmer, is a good role model and a source of income for tens of labourers.

James is an information communication technology services provider and teacher. He has a shop through which he offers training on ICT to youth especially. He also provides on-call services to clients – going to his client’s businesses and doing work on site.

Dorah had opened and was running her own hair salon, but her business went burst due to her absence as her time was taken up doing part-time paid development work. She continues to be a hairdresser employed in another’s salon. She uses the opportunity to give advice to clients. She shared: “Am glad to be a beneficiary of the mentoring program at CPAR Uganda, because I have been able to learn a lot. The lessons I learnt from the mentoring are helping me get back on my feet after losing my saloon.”

Thank you to you all who made contributions that enabled us to make a difference in the lives of young adults from disadvantaged communities. It gives us satisfaction that your gifts keep on giving as the the young people continue to innovate and give back to their respective communnities innovating to make things better for the greater good.
