PARENTS CONCERN PROJECTS

1. Vocational training for teenage mothers

Targeting the girl child for vocational training provides help and support for the rest of the family. The girls are trained in skills like tailoring, knitting, design, tie and dye, computer training, bakery, small business management skills and agriculture. They are also trained In Christian living and abstinence to avoid the deadly HIV/AIDS. There are also orphaned boys who drop of school due to funds that can benefit from vocational skills like motor repair, carpentry, motor driving, and other cross cutting projects. This would enable them live a responsible life and also bring them near to God. Read More

Education is expensive in Uganda.

Many drop out of school due to lack of school requirements while others do not go to school at all.

Relevant skills can lead to employment, income generation, poverty reduction, empowerment and self esteem...Read More
