Seeking Partnership to give health education and skills training to the female youth in Uganda

Requested by

Agape of Hope Female Youth Development Association

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

We are a community based female youth organization focusing on the living conditions of the female youth and young mothers.

The issue we are trying to address is that many of them did not get chance to go further in education and got early pregnancies because of lack of health education, among others.

What is your project and how will it help?

The project is Adolescent Reproductive Health Education and Skills Training.

The objective is to help and support the female youth to have knowledge on health and sexual risks, as well as obtain skills to give them self-sustainability.

The project consists on empowering them through skills training in areas such as tailoring, hair dressing, tie and dye, knitting and handcrafts.
We also train them regarding adolescent reproductive health education, so as to have knowledge in HIV/AIDS and fistula prevention.

The project will help:
• To provide the female youth with basic information and knowledge on human rights to enhance their capacity to become responsible citizens.
• To train the female youth in vocational skills developments and other related fields.
• To support the female youth in alternative means of live hoods, life skills for the prevention of HIV/AIDS and early pregnancies.

A very detailed outline of the project can be found on the attached file ‘Adolescent Reproductive Health Education and Skills Training Program’.

How can other people partner with you on your project?

Other people can partner with us in capacity building and resources mobilization.

Please detail the resources that you need.

At the moment we need a 1 year grant of US$ 22,489.00

This to enable us to implement the activities in Adolescent Reproductive Health Education and Skills Training.

A detailed budget of the project can be found on the attached file ‘Adolescent Reproductive Health Education and Skills Training Program’.
