Challenge

The creative abilities and livelihood skills of children and young people have always remained low because of limited exposure to skills development opportunities. They also lag behind in information communication technology because less than 10% of their schools in the project catchment have skilling programs and computer laboratories for learning. The project intends to run holiday skilling programs at several communities together with a full-time program at the main site

Solution

We train young, unemployed men and women in rural Uganda in apprenticeship skills. The training includes hair styling, bakery, tailoring , paper bag making, printing, welding, marketing, business skills and value-added production. By learning a marketable skill, these young men and women generate income and lift themselves out of poverty

Long-Term Impact

After their training the program will facilitate them with start up kits, they are expected to be able to produce good quality products leading to an increase in Gross Domestic product and profitability. The program also empowers youth to effectively work in their village settings to enable them create jobs among themselves.
