Our Programs - Youth Skills Development

Youth Skills Development

Sustainable economic development of any country depends on its employment capacity and this can be better seen on the number of youth employment in different sectors.

 

Emphasis should therefore be put on empowering the youth with different skills.

This calls for concerted efforts to reduce unemployment since they form the biggest percentage of the population.

World Bank 2012 statistics show that Uganda has the youngest population in the world at 83%, Action Aid International Uganda reports that 62% of youth in Uganda are jobless, the report further shows that 12% of all youth in Uganda aged between 12-30 are chronically poor with higher poverty rates among 12-17 years olds as compared to the 18-30 years old.

 

Our strategy:

In collaboration with other stakeholders, TWA plans to do the following:

• Training the youth in sustainable vocational skills and empowerment interventions at different levels.
• Gender sensitivity livelihood programming should be considered in enterprise selection.
• Reducing HIV infections, address stigma and discrimination of youth living or affected by this pandemic.
• Promoting lobbying and advocacy for supporting community mechanisms for sustaining youth activities.
• Government policy on youth geared at supporting youth life skills programs should be included in district action plans.
