Vocational training for the needy community of Kyampisi Village, Uganda

Requested by

Kayunga Intergrated Community Action for Development (KICAD)

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

The establishment of a vocational training centre in Kyampisi Village will enable marginalized out of school youths, especially orphans and vulnerable children, young mothers, youths (in and out of school), elderly and disabled persons to receive training on tailoring and dressmaking in order to acquire the necessary skills to integrate the textile industry. Training will include use of both manual and electric machines.

The primary goal of the project is to provide literacy health and marketable vocational training to the marginalized and underprivileged out of school orphans children in Kayunga district, giving them an opportunity to steer their lives towards a more promising future by making them economically independent.

What is your project and how will it help?

Kayunga Integrated Community Action for Development (KICAD) is a registered community based, non-profit organization established in 2008 and was registered in 2012. We undertake innovative programs through actively involving primarily distressed, marginalized and poor people, especially orphans and vulnerable children, young mothers, youths (in and out of school), elderly and disabled persons in Kayunga district of Uganda. The objective of setting up a vocational centre program is to provide skills to out of school orphans and vulnerable youths in the district so as to empower them economically.

KICAD is cautious of the applicability and effectiveness of the skills that will be offered, and ensure that the skills learnt will be able to be put into practice at their respective village and community. It is not just a vocational training center for the out of school orphan children, but this project is to ensure that other marginalized youths will be able to use the machines for their economic survival, self-reliance and sustainability of their livelihood.

How can other people partner with you on your project?
