This is a prime requirement for the reduction of poverty and the hope of a better future. Unfortunately, there are not enough appropriate opportunities for Ugandan youth to learn vocational skills. Education is one of the long lasting poverty alleviating strategies. There is a growing body of evidence suggesting that spending time in school is an effective strategy.
