For all vulnerable children in Uganda to live in a nation free from illiteracy and poverty
To contribute to improved livelihood for vulnerable children and their families through comprehensive approaches in education, health, economic empowerment and child protection.
The Skilling program trains vulnerable youths in the age bracket of 14 – 30 who are carefully selected from the community and trained in vocational skills. The youths are trained in both formal and non-formal courses. The project uses the apprenticeship model where the beneficiaries are put under supervised placements focused on particular trades but is supplemented with classroom based instruction with clearly defined curriculum. The trainings also incorporate life skills trainings and range over a period of between six months to one year. The skills include but not limited to hairdressing, tailoring and garment construction, Carpentry and Joinery, Brick laying and concrete practice and electrical installation. There will also be short courses like soap making, candle making and Art and craft.
