We are a Grassroot Organization called TWEKEMBE ASSOCIATION CENTRE FOR RURAL SYSTEMS AND DEVELOPMENT (T.A-CRUSADE - UGANDA), operating in the Communities. T.A-CRUSADE- UGANDA empowers Communities to change difficult Situations into Opportunities that Improve their own Living Standards and Welfare to become Responsible Citizens and break away from the Pangs of Poverty.
Each year, thousands of Ugandan Poor Youth and Children drop out of Schools and fail to get the basic gainful employment, while most of these are Teen mothers, Orphans, Victims of split families, Widows, Pregnant teenagers , from rural and peri-urban areas, HIV Victims.
As a way of Assisting and Re-Integrating these Vulnerable Persons into Society, T.A- CRUSADE - UGANDA has initiated a Community Vocational Training Project in Nakiwate Village, Nabbaale Sub County, Mukono District to Train and Empower them with Vocational Skills in Hair dressing, Tailoring, Carpentry, Computer Applications, Masonry and Brick laying, Craft making among others, with all these Courses blended with an Entrepreneurship Component which will in turn improve on their income generating potential as we strive to improve on their Livelihood Prospects.
Principally we are requesting for $4500 to purchase Roofing Materials, Doors and Windows for a 5 Class roomed Block we have constructed up to Wall plate level using Local Resources for Training Purposes as we wait for a Confirmed Bulky Vocational Training Equipment Donation from Europe for the same Project (Part of this has already arrived i.e. 28 Electric Sewing Machines).
