Following a successful economic needs assessment carried out in Lutissi, Kyasa, Nakedde, and Kitayita parishes of Namayumba Sub County, Wakiso district, income-generating skills such as bar soap making, book making, tailoring, and bakery were identified as preferred by the beneficiaries. In Kyasa, fashion & tailoring and soap making were selected. The beneficiaries were divided into these two groups, with 12 in fashion & tailoring and 13 in soap making.

This led us to provide them with a comprehensive financial literacy training to equip them with essential financial knowledge and local market insights. An expert loans officer from the SACCO was invited to share valuable information. The training took place on Wednesday, 16th August 2023, at a residence in Kalungu village, Kyasa parish, Namayumba sub-county, Wakiso district, targeting 25 child mothers and young women at risk from the mentioned localities.

  • Mobilize at least 20 child mothers and young women at risk for financial training in Bembe parish by the end of 29th August 2023.
