Youth Livelihood Project in Uganda

Requested by

Isore Women Initiative for Sustainable Development

Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address?

From the facts finding survey conducted by Isore women Initiative for sustainable development the following issues were noted:

- 500 Youth are currently unemployed as a result of early marriages on the increase.

- 500 Youth are redundant in the rural areas since majority are unemployed, they lack the skills for self-employment. Yet there is a lot of unused land in villages.

The reason is that 500 youth lack skills, because they are uneducated, some are dropouts and some because of our education system lack practical skills up on those who go through it before finishing the university.

- Domestic violence unchecked
- Crime rate has drastically gone up
- There is an urgent need to teach the youth to be productive regardless of their level of education as means of eradicating poverty.

The sure way to get out of poverty is to provide them with entrepreneur skills and livelihood options.

What is your project and how will it help?

The goal of this project is to empower youth with livelihood skills and opportunities; so as to improve their productivity and incomes, while helping their communities to increase household incomes.

The project objectives are:

- To recruit, train, support and supervise 20 community volunteer peer educators (VPEs) aged 18-30 who will lead project implementation over 12 months.

- To promote the development of youth entrepreneur skills.

- To support the youth improve their livelihood opportunities and options through IGAs.
