Keep a girl child in school Project
In Uganda young girls across the country are forced out of school because they cannot manage their menstrual hygiene. Most parents can not afford to buy sanitary pads for their girls which results into dropping out of school, child marriage, pregnancy, family pressures, violence and harassment. Poverty keep girls from reaching their potential. As KiYoDeL we are addressing the critical barriers that keep girls out of the classroom. We provide sanitary pads to five different primary schools around the regions of Kihorobo, to help keep girls in school during their monthly menstruation. We will also provide mentorship to both boys and girls through life skills and character development training. Parents, teachers, and communities leaders will be educated on the importance and benefits of keeping young boys and girls in school. Through this program, together we can be a part of breaking the cycle of poverty for them and their children.
Hold my Hand Project
KIYODEL through “Hold My Hand” project, runs several development initiatives aimed at empowering the underprivileged youth. The hold my hand project supports the most underprivileged, vulnerable and marginalized youths living in poverty in Rwoho town council, who finish primary school education and cannot afford to join secondary education. KIYODEL gives them an opportunity to learn skills by providing scholarships and scholarstic materials.
KIYODEL Skills Training Center Project
KIYODEL is setting up a youth skills training centre to give the underprivileged, vulnerable and marginalized youth an opportunity to learn self-reliance skills among others including but not limited to Tailoring, Carpentry and Woodworking, making Art & Crafts, Motorcycle mechanics, Metal welding, Hair dressing, Business entrepreneurship and computer literacy etc.
The skills training centre will give an opportunity to the youth in the region who have finished minimum primary school education and cannot further education due to lack of funds and lack of alternative to the formal education. This is aimed at increasing the youths’ ability to create their own jobs and become favourable candidates for employment opportunities and consequently fight against child marriages and unemployment amongst youth hence fighting poverty.
