Challenge

Most People especially the youths and married women of Makindye municipality in Uganda live under abject poverty due to lack of practical skills for future self-sustenance. They are also ignorant about adolescent sexual and reproductive health issues. Some are involved in small scale businesses in order to earn a living hence creating an ever needy and disadvantaged syndrome among the community. The meager incomes scarcely live them with nothing to save and therefore low rates of investment.

Solution

The vulnerable youths, women and persons with disabilities will be trained and will be equipped with education and vocation skills which we expect to lead them to employing themselves. The redundancy of the beneficiaries in the area will be reduced since a big percentage is expected to be engaged in productive work. The standards of living among the 100 families will improve since they will be in position to start up income generating projects even before completing their courses.

Long-Term Impact

Skills Link Uganda vocational, micro entrepreneurship and life skills training project will educate (100) youths, women and persons with disabilities allowing them to rise out of poverty, which will provide for their families health and well - being
