  • Business Opposes Poverty: Vocational Training in Kampala, Uganda

    “Business opposes poverty. We are training the girls on purpose. We want them to acquire a skill that they can easily use as an income generating business. And we are already very encouraged with the tremendous progress the girls are making." ~The director of The Remnant Generation, Annabelle Nakabiri 

    In 2016, Kingdom Causes began partnering with Impact Nations to help fund The School of Purpose in Kampala Uganda.The project provides vocational training for at-risk women who have faced sexual abuse, cirsis pregnancies, and extreme poverty. Nearly 40% of women in Uganda have given birth before the age of 18. Often the women are uneducated, leaving them with little training to be employed and economically sustain themselves. Remnant Generation is committed to helping young mothers achieve vocational training with the goal of achieving employment in order to care and support their families. As of July 4th, 2017 the School of Purpose officially opened its doors. The goal is to improve the quality of life of 30 girls between the ages of 10 and 20 years old through vocational training, Biblical studies, and overall life skills. 

    The school has two big classroom blocks, furniture and training materials. There are currently 18 girls registered. They are participating in a five month training program that will end in November. The three trained facilitators teach the women hair dressing, tailoring, creative, and numeracy and literacy skills. In addition, a backyard garden is being constructed where women will learn to cultivate vegetables in a small space.  

    Although this program is fully funded, Kingdom Causes hopes to continue in this partnership and help with any future financial needs the Remnant Generation presents.
