Project Timeline

Overview

Our partners have a big vision - to build and run a Vocational Training Academy, near the Nile River. Having purchased the land, plans have been drawn up and costed for a staged development of the project. Current courses in Tailoring and Fashion, Hair and Beauty, and Music will expand to add new courses such as Carpentry and Building, Metal Fabrication, Baking and Catering. Phase II will see the completion of a workshop to house training in brickmaking, carpentry and metal fabrication, as well as an interim multi-purpose space for running tailoring and hairdressing courses. Local, vulnerable youth are learning construction techniques on-the-job as they build the workshop and are gaining valuable training which will provide them with ongoing employment to construct the full project.

Why support this

Entrust has supported our partner in four successful projects to date. We appreciate their hearts for disadvantaged youth and the strategic vision to develop social enterprises to support their work and expand much-needed vocational training courses Uganda-wide. There are very high levels of youth unemployment in Uganda, where 78% of the population is under 30. Our partner's focus is on the next generation bringing hope, skills and expertise to build for a better future.
