Challenge

Pader Town Council household incomes are estimated to average less than a dollar a day; making it impossible for many people of the Town Council to meet their basic needs. Indeed, the Uganda National Household Survey reported that 21.7% (about 600) of Pader Town Council households, an estimated 3,000 people, consume less than two meals a day. The survey also reported prevalent in Pader Town Council, common preventable poverty diseases like malaria, diarrhoea, TB, skin infections & malnutrition.

Solution

CPAR Uganda has property, buildings & land in Pader Town Council, which we will modify & utilize to establish an artisanal skills development centre. We will buy & equip our centre with machines, equipment and material; as well as power & utilities that are necessary for the functioning of our centre. We will deploy our Rural Innovator, a young adult who exceptionally completed a welding apprenticeship with an established welder, to work with & mentor 25 youth to become income earning welders.

Long-Term Impact

Standards of living will improve for households of at least 80 percent of youth who will apprentice with this project. At least 50 percent of benefiting households of the participating youth will earn sufficient incomes from doing welding work to be able to meet their basic & genuine needs, including feeding on balanced diets. And 90 percent of the benefiting youth will testify attaining improved social standing in their wider community, including being voted into & entrusted with leadership.
