All over the world the message is the same. Give me a skill or a trade and I can make a living. No skill and I have nothing to sell. I am abandoned!
We took a hard look at what are the really important skills which will give our boys and girls the confidence to make their way in the world.
For Uganda and for much of Africa the answer was very easy to find.
The population is rising fast. So people need houses (building skills) they need food (modern high efficiency tropical agricultural skills and animal husbandry), they need clothes (garment making), they need heat and light (we have focused on Biogas) and they need health education.
These are the core skills which we aim to give our children and we know that they will make a really big impact.
