Challenge

Poverty is well and thriving in Northern Uganda, which is the poorest region in the country. In spite of thousands of targeted development initiatives for the region by government and other development actors, a significant number of households in the region still live below the poverty line - they typically live in poor quality housing; are less likely to have at least two meals a day; have low levels of human capital; and have insufficient assets and limited access to vital public services

Solution

The project will contribute to the region's human development in the form of skilled personnel that have experienced an awakening process, which will lead them to a rational analysis of their own attitudes and actions, as well as the existing social, cultural, economic and political relationships in their region. Building on that critical awareness, as employees or self-employed actors, they will effectively initiate and promote processes for personal, family, community and national development.

Long-Term Impact

Standards of living will improve for households of at least 70 percent of those mentored and of other households within their community that come into contact with them. Benefiting households will actively engage in agricultural production for dietary diversity and nutrition, income generation and environmental conservation; and that will improve their social and economic well-being. The mentored students will participate in public discourse and lobby for better public healthcare services.
