UPLIFT project- Empowering Youth in Kampala
World Vision Uganda, with support from World Vision Australia and the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) is implementing an urban program for livelihoods and income fortification, and socio civic transformation for young people in Kampala. The Project seeks to address some of the key problems being faced by youth in Kampala, notably unemployment, limited access to sexual and reproductive health services, low levels of awareness on issues of rights and civic participation, plus high level of vulnerability to abuse and exploitation.
The project targets young people between the age of 13 and 25, through interventions intended towards equipping them with vocational skills, bussiness and entreprenueurship skills plus increasing access to child protection and advocacy. In addition, the project empowers these young people with essential age-appropriate life skills for effective leadership, representation and involvement on key civic issues relevant to them.
