The youth empowerment program was established to empower young people to contribute meaningfully to the socio-economic and sustainable development of their communities. Its objective is to support the youth between the ages of 15 to 25 years through skills training and internship modules to transit from a situation of unemployment to that of employment.
Ssamba Foundation has been helping young people gain knowledge about themselves, their sexuality, and employment preparation; exploring attitudes and skills about growing up, gender roles, risk-taking, and ethnic diversity; and equipping young people with a range of skills to make them active members of their local communities and to succeed in life.
Where necessary, we deliver literacy and numeracy training on top of life skills programs. Also, Ssamba Foundation delivers training for youth in essential skills for succeeding in wage and self-employment, including building young people’s capacity for business development, and equipping them with employability skills such as time & stress management, interpersonal relations, problem solving, goal-setting, decision-making, negotiation, communications, confidence building, teamwork, among others.
