According to statistics from UNICEF, World Bank, World Health Organization and World Vision, 63% of girl children in Uganda live a life driven by poverty, hunger, ignorance, illiteracy, violence, abuse, child labour and oppression putting their future in jeopardy. The majority of these children live in rural communities in Uganda. They lack access to skills development and entrepreneurial opportunities that would otherwise have improved their quality of life!
After conducting "Girl Child Life Ground Survey" in JULY,2019, Bugema Community Child Based Organization (BCCBO) UGANDA designed and implemented a program "Skills Development and Entrepreneurship" to empower 700 vulnerable, marginalized and disadvantaged Girl-Children in especially in rural Uganda. Through "Skills Development and Entrepreneurship project" girl children are equipped with basic healthcare skills, small scale business management skills, agricultural skills and vocational skills.
"Skills Development for Girl Child Empowerment" will help 1000 girl children especially in rural Uganda to acquire skills such as healthcare skills, small scale business management skills, agricultural skills, vocational skills such as Tailoring, Bakery, Bridal Care, Art, Craft & Design, Catering, Resource Mobilization, Utilization and Conservation, Juice Making and Liquid Soap Making. This will help them to create more jobs for others as well as raise money for their basic necessities of life.
