We are a team of people committed to equip youths in Uganda and worldwide with knowledge and sustainable measures to handle and catch up with the economic league hence breaking the poverty cycle.
We believe that personal development, education and vocational skills are the way to end poverty.
We advocate for a better future for youth in Uganda and worldwide through all the activities and projects we do.
We aim to facilitate and endorse a belief that vocational training will offer youth the chance to secure jobs faster, to be self-reliant and establish their own businesses.
We believe skills do change the lives of many young people today. And that is why, for this year’s celebrations, we decided to profile some of the programs that are availing skills to young people in Uganda.
Every child has the right to learn
All children have the right to go to school and learn, regardless of who they are, where they live or how much money their family has. Children attending school in Rural Communities of Uganda face a great number of challenges like: lack of materials to use at school, lack of food, walking long distances, lack of clean and safe water, among others.
Reaching out to poor rural community schools with scholastic materials is one of the key activities
Our passion and focus is to see the communities become better places for generations to come.
At Shine With Skills, we make sure our work aligns with as many of the United Nations’ broader sustainable development goals as possible.
We work towards Relevant SDG Targets related to Skills and Employability. We advocate for skills as an important factor to improve young people’s transitions to decent work and to highlight the crucial role of skilled youth in addressing today’s most challenging global issues.
