Village Entrepreneurship is an initiative to train youths in business start-ups. Youths work on real life business models as part of their class assignments.Twenty two youths business proposals have been selected from Buwenda village, a suburb in Jinja district. These businesses include Stationery shops, poultry farming, construction companies, nursery schools and others.
Fundraising for this business venture will be launched soon on crowdfunding. Youths will be guided along with experienced mentors in the initial stages of their businesses in order to help them succeed.
Information Communications Technology(ICT) has potential to liberate the weak and the marginalised in society. In today's' world, technology plays an important role in creating employment.
We provide free quality computer training skills and Entrepreneurship programs using the most up to date available resources including open source software, online courses and face to face teaching.
2015 was big year for students in our programs. Ninety certificates were awarded to students in different disciplines, including web designers, e-commerce developers, games developers, primary school teachers, HIV/AIDS awareness health workers and entrepreneurship students.
In the last two years since our inception, we have directly served over 400 people and created paths to paid employment.
Non Government Organisation's play a vital role in creating jobs mainly for the youth of this area. Some of these organisations lack skilled Information and Communication Technology personnels. This impedes them from fully performing their activities due to the lack of training.
We reach out to these organisations and provide training of skills needed so that the members of their staff can apply ICT resources to their day to day operation in order to effectively perform their duties.
This approach has improved organisations use of the most up to date available tools to improve service quality. Training personnel in information and communications technology also allows for NGOs to reach out to a wider communities that they serve.
Quality education is a highway to better grades on both local and national exams. Rural schools have high school dropout rates, have high absenteeism, a shortage of qualified teachers and a lack educational resources such as textbooks.
Training teachers in ICT skills helps them to use educational resources like pdf files, text books, educational literature, apps and online teacher training programs.
We teach primary teachers in Microsoft Office, the internet, MOODLE and other educational tools to enhance classroom teaching.
Most of the schools in Jinja district don't have access to a web presence. For the first time in the district we have designed a portal website to host all the schools in Jinja district.
www.jinjaschools.com will give access to a wealth of information resources, educational content, academic materials, apps, online teacher training courses, teacher blogs and MOODLE. These resources will give pupils access to class lectures using their mobile phones.
There is a shortage of educational resources especially in rural schools. They don't have textbooks, libraries, past papers, reading materials or other helpful educational tools. With the availability to view past papers online, students have the ability to access resources using mobile phones to read and prepare for exams.
The website with time will have a large quantity of educational content like moodle, virtual libraries, educational apps and class notes posted by students from various schools. This will help other students access quality notes and obtain better grades.
