The story

Due to high level of illiteracy, extreme poverty, unemployment, commercial sex workers, and vulnerable people, the community members are trained in handcraft life skills to enable them create their own jobs and increase individual and household income.

Community Development Groups are formed in villages with its leadership structures and they engage in life skills such as ndegeya and mats making, table cloths, craft chairs, sweaters, and shopping bags. Sale of these items in the local market earns them income. The people like Orphans, people with disabilities, people living with HIV/AIDs, child mothers and child headed families, widows, women and youth are the targeted beneficial to be empowered.

P4T is having a vision of opening up a life skills vocational institution which will further provide sustainability for the project and provide a long lasting skills training institution to replace the existing informal system.
