Summary

The Nakivale vocational training in Uganda will empower refugees by turning them active participants and competent development actors. The goal of the Center is to train refugees in sewing, painting, languages, online courses (among other skills) and to enable refugees to earn an income and to live in dignity. A holistic transformative approach in education, inclusive development, culture promotion and leadership will be promoted. The Center will be a point of reference for refugees in the camp.

Challenge

Uganda has opened its borders to become one of the countries hosting the most refugees in the world (with refugees from South Sudan, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), and Burundi), bringing the total number of refugees in Uganda to an estimated 1.1 million people. Due to the high numbers of refugees in Uganda, humanitarian needs among these groups are significant and diverse varying by population group and location. In many settlements, refugees live in very difficult conditions.

Solution

To overcome these challenges and improve the living conditions of refugees, FOH aims to built a vocational training center Nakivale refugee settlements in Uganda. This Center would focus on offering not only vocational training (in painting, culinary arts, sewing, soap making), but also would have a library and an e-learning centre (to study online language courses, university studies, entrepreneurship, etc). Psychosocial support, theatre workshops would take place at the center.

Long-Term Impact

Our belief is that through a value-centered education, we can transform people's mind-sets, attitudes and behaviors, unlock tremendous leadership potential in young refugees. We undertake to focus on capacity building for young refugees to transform them into competent economic development actors. The main aim is to educate and offer tools to refugees to improve their present living conditions in the camp, but also, we seek to prepare them to be skillful key actors of change.
