Challenge

When lock down was effected during Covid 19 pandemic, all businesses were closed rendering them permanently closed as poor guardians consumed even the little capital they had, when government reopened the economy, most of these poor families could not start again, they cannot feed their children, neither can they take them to school. (The Image used in this project is of Jolly,a woman we supported with a booster grant recently in Mpigi District )

Solution

This project will provide booster grants worth $500 US to each of these families to start all over again so that they become self reliant, this programme has been providing food support to these families for the last one year but seeks to change to a more sustainable implementation approach

Long-Term Impact

The project has organized these families into village groups and is training them in business skills so that they can better manage their businesses, the project has also empowered the groups to start saving and loaning themselves with low interest rates

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a DOCX file (projdoc.docx).
