This project was created in response to the high rates of unemployment and poverty among youth in northern Uganda and is designed to empower budding entrepreneurs with soft and hard skills training, start-up capital and workshops to enable them to tackle their challenges head-on.
The project identifies 10 youth groups, totalling 50 young entrepreneurs a year, to go through a rigorous training program and case competition to access start-up capital. Every year, three groups are selected to obtain start-up capital. They are then supported through workshops, mentoring, and technical backstopping during the course of their ventures.
