Sponsor a girl child & women with skills training

Summary

Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, hundreds of thousands of girl children have been affected in poor communities in Uganda and the livelihoods have been disrupted. Girls have been deprived of access to protection and many exposed to abuse and exploitation. Already, these girls have lost close to two years of education. Unfortunately, many have become pregnant and may never return even to formal education making skills development training the next best alternative for self help.

Challenge

Many teenage girls and teenage mothers hardly have any opportunity to return to formal education leaving skills development the only opportunity they can find skills for self help. the teenage mothers are always single mothers after they concieve because those responsible always denies responsibility which makes it hard for un employed girl to take care of the child.

Solution

Girls and women empowered and trained in tailoring, hair dressing, farming, information technology, business management will have the opportunity to start their own jobs and allow them create sustainable livelihoods to provide for their families and send their children to school and ultimately build a brighter future for their whole community.

Long-Term Impact

Dependence on others for livelihood and exploting a girl child for being vulnerable will be minimized. unemployment will be minimized and family wrangles resulting from, domestic violence will be minimized as teenage mothers can contribute to their families well being.
