The project title is called "Small Sustainable Household Income Generating Activities Project-SSHIGAP".
This is the project proposal intended to train and support the rural poor women and youth girls to start small sustainable household income generating activities in order to avoid famine and poverty. The project will be carried out in south western Uganda, According to the recent survey made by our community based organization, it was found that 77% of the rural poor women and youth girls were spending less than a half a dollar per day and this was coupled with high levels of famine and poverty.
The project will identify rural poor women and youth girls and train, support them to start small scale sustainable household income generating activities in order to get food and also remain with the surplus for sale in order to earn a small living. Small projects like farming and agriculture are the main activities in this project plus training the women and youth girls about book keeping as a way to track the small business growth or failure.
The project is intending to employ a project coordinator, field officer and the project accountant. The Project is intended to benefit the rural poor women and youth girls who were according to a survey done were spending less than a half a dollar per day and the situation being characterized by high levels of famine and poverty. the project will benefit 480 rural poor women and youth girls in the first year and through its sustainability program it will also benefit other 480 rural poor women and youth girls making a total of 960 rural poor women and youth girls.
The above people will benefit through training and support in form giving them agriculture and farming inputs for starting.
