Hello! Thank you so much for your generous support to Youth With A Vision! We thank God for bringing us to the end of this month and we are glad to share with you what we have accomplished.
Children welfare and education.
Vocation skills training. We understand that sometimes formal education may not work out for all and that not everyone will become an engineer or a doctor or an accountant. In regards to this, we are equipping less privileged young people with vocational skills that they can employ especially when things don’t work out the way they thought they would, to successfully navigate through the challenges they face along their life journey. We have continued to engage children in vocational skills like making liquid soap and crafts in order to keep children busy and active and also to generate some income to help them meet their needs. Children have made scarfs and caps and we have displayed these products on our online shop.

Reopening of schools for students. As the candidates are set to do their final exam, the ministry of education has scheduled the dates for the rest of the students to return back to school after a long time of stay at home that followed the closure of schools due to the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic. children in kindergarten shall remain home because it will be hard for them to observe the Standard operating procedures. We will continue providing learning materials to these children while at home. Students in tertiary institutions will also return back to school on1st February 2021
Reporting and Break-off dates for Primary and Secondary schools
We are doing our best to ensure that children under our care especially those without sponsors return back to school with all the necessary requirements including tuition fees, scholastic materials, lunch meals, sanitizers, and masks. We thank our dear sponsors for making it possible for the less privileged children to attend school.
YOUTH FINANCE SCHEME
Two beneficiaries have been helped to recover their businesses back to normal Noeline Malyante of Standard Fashion Designers is one of the two beneficiaries we have helped this month to boost her project during the pandemic. She received Five Hundred Thousand Shillings (£112, $143, and €139, 500,000 UGX) to re-capitalize her businesses. Noeline has experience and knowledge in tailoring and mending people’s clothes as well as managing her tailoring business, she can do the business very successfully and she is hopeful to earn an income for a living, taking care of her parents and siblings, and also saving to increase on her project. Noeline wants to start training young people in the community to also get skills in tailoring during this pandemic as some of them are waiting for their classes to go back to school. She was paying her loan balance very well and her business successful up to when the pandemic affected her business in the last months of her loan repayment and so she needed our support to come back to normal.

Six new participants applied to our scheme in need of support to start-up their own enterprises.
These youth presented their business ideas to our finance officer and she helped them to develop these business ideas into realistic business plans. After presenting their plans youth had a 5 days training in financial literacy where they were equipped with skills and knowledge of how to start and manage their businesses and finances during the daily running of their projects.
Youth after acquiring these skills, we provided them with a 6 days internship training in different projects according to everyone’s business. By the end of the course, we expect them to have knowledge of how to manage the businesses they will start.
Because of our limited resources in the Youth Finance Scheme, we are going to support one youth at the beginning of March with £223, $286, €278 & UGX: 1,000,000 to start up his Bakwagalana Cattle rearing project in Kayonza village - Kacheera - Rakai District and we are looking forward to getting more support to help other youths that are still on pending.

SPONSOR A CHILD
Sponsoring a child is an effective way to contribute your help to individuals and communities in need, without ever leaving home. Your gift will help provide your sponsored child and other children in desperate need with the basic necessities that can help them reach their God-given potential, including access to resources like clean water, better nutrition, basic healthcare, education, spiritual nurture, and economic opportunities for his or her.
No matter what, we are committed to the provision of opportunities for prosperity to all children and youth. And this is why we need you all alongside us, and more to facilitate students who are resuming school on 1st March 2021, and continue providing homeschooling opportunities for those students whose classes are still locked down.
The children presented here are in desperate need of someone to sponsor them for a brighter future. Please sponsor or help to find a sponsor for any of them.
