Unemployment is the biggest challenge facing vulnerable rural communities like women, youth, and person with disabilities in Uganda. Through the community driven model, RAFO lets such communities identify possible employment avenues and then build their capacities through trainings in business management, providing and advocating for access to start-up capital for the most “vulnerable persons” and many others.
Some have bought motto cycles and joined the Boda boda transport business. RAFO also works to end unemployment for educated youth. Accessing a job in Uganda without working experiencing is a challenge to most fresh graduates.
RAFO strives to provide “work based skills” to fresh graduates through trainings. RAFO has a team partners with experts of different professions and experience that conduct such trainings. Theses trainings are intended to give employable skills to youth. They include field based project management, data management and analysis (using filed based data software like excel, spss, stata, EpiInfo. Epi Data etc), Accounting software like quick books, Ms Project, ICT packages and many others activity report writing, monitoring and evaluation, supply chain management and many professions.
