Vocational skill training

Tailoring & Informatics

Skill is the power to poverty eradication

A vocational skill training is the project proposed. This is intended to be located in Kabala town which is found in south western Uganda. Kabale is a densely populated area which has resulted into many children become vulnerable as a result of orphanage, poverty, child labor, and child abuse. Due to this, many children are disadvantaged since their house holds cannot afford basic needs of children. This has put the lives of many young children at risk and this poverty has resulted into an increase in high crime rate, prostitution, rape, theft, and committing suicide of young children due to frustrations, drug abuse, high chances of acquiring HIV/AIDS disease since children both girls and boys end up loitering in town and many other dangerous places.

Once this project has taken off, the beneficiaries will be vulnerable children and single mothers (guardians) who are low income earners due to lack of skills. This project will support already established projects in place in fighting poverty at house hold level which has become the core factor of vulnerability. It is estimated that this project will cost Uganda shillings 24.325.000
  
This project once established will play a pivotal role in the social economic development which will again be an answer to the affected people.
    
The proposed project will help the agency in equipping children and other school drop outs with skills which will be an answer to poverty eradication and will end child labor which has always affected vulnerable children due to lack of professional skills.
As this project starts, children who mat not be able successful in education will be equipped with skills and as a result their lost hope will be restored.

Once the project starts, children will start a six month training program and their guardians (single mothers). This will enable trainees to acquire skills alongside their academic. This will also give an opportunity to slow learners to get certain skills. Once the trainees finish, they will be able to get employment and get sweaters, and uniforms will be made from here as they sell them and get income for both the child and the project for sustainability. Every finished product, a child will be paid after selling for his/her labor hence an income generating project. After six months of training, each trainee will be provided with materials to produce 2 sets of finished products which will be sold for sustainability of the project.
 
It is hoped that once trainees have acquired skills in tailoring or informatics, some of the best will be absorbed into the project to train others. The project targets all disadvantaged children including school drop outs and single mothers. It is targeted to cater for about 400 trainees both children and guardians.
