Challenge

In Uganda, particularly in Budaka and Kibuku district dropout of orphaned girl children in schools is extremely high despite the existing Universal Primary and Secondary Education in Budaka and Kibuku district. Caregivers lack adequate capacity to provide necessary support like scholastic materials and other basic needs of girl children. The project will establish sustainable income generating projects to 500 caregivers and train 1200 Orphan Girl Children in Menstrual Health Hygiene practices.

Solution

500 caregivers will be provided with knowledge and skills in less labour intensive technologies, cabbage, onion, tomatoes and eggplant seeds, spray pumps and pesticides to undertake the project to raise sustainable income to support orphan girl children in schools. 1200 orphan girl children will be trained in menstrual health hygiene and making of the reusable pads. And they will be trainers of other adolescent girls in the community.

Long-Term Impact

The project seeks for funds to improve the literacy levels of girls to enable them become self reliant and have sustainable livelihood. The project will also contribute to improved livelihood of the OVCs caregivers
