The project “Skill Up!” is funded by the BMZ and aims at contributing to a better socio-economic status of vulnerable youth ages 18-30 by providing them with technical, business and life skills in different trades. The vocational training is carried out in hairdressing, tailoring, motor vehicle and motorcycle mechanics, brick laying and concrete practice, welding and carpentry. It always takes place in selected enterprises located in the four operation areas; Rwimi, Kibiito, Kyenjojo and Fort Portal Tourism City, where the trainees work Monday to Saturday, with the exception of one day of “life skills training”. The training consists of 6 months of practical training and 2 months of grace period; it started on November 16th 2022 and currently consists of around 230 trainees. After the training, the trainees get the chance to acquire a certificate by the Directorate of Industry Training (DIT). Even before the end of the training, the trainees are able to produce quality products or provide their services. It is amazing to see their technical skills develop and their personalities flourish.
