There are so many needs in Uganda, which we want to address and we are continuously working with the local community to develop new projects that will offer education and reduce poverty for the children and young people. Any projects we undertake have to be cost effective, have maximum impact and have a long term sustainability.
Agricultural Apprentice Programme
Over the past 4 years, we have developed an agricultural vocational skills centre, with the investment in the infrastructure to create demonstration gardens with innovative irrigation systems, the construction of the training facility & piloting a peer education project. With the learning gained and the investment in the infrastructure, we are now looking to fund a new 3-year programme with the focus on scaling up the community education, with the recruitment and training of young people as apprentices in community-based home farming. Through seed funding, the programme will support the apprentices in a year-long training course, which will include the setting up of their own home farming microsite’s, where they will run workshops to young people within wider community through a peer education methodology.
Vocational Skills Centres
The vocational training centres have now been established and we have seen a cultural change in the community, with a greater value being placed on the vocational skills and a mindset that they can take control of their future. Over the next year we are looking to develop these projects further with peer education being used to have increased impact in the community, especially with the community agriculture projects.
We are also looking to develop a playground for each school which will support the children’s physical and adolescent development.
