Youth in Uganda make up 64% of the total unemployed; a problem that is likely to increase given that 3/4 of the population are under 30. Young people are often ill-equipped to enter the work force and youth with disabilities are doubly disadvantaged and young women even more so. Sightsavers will present its approach to the economic empowerment of young women and men with disabilities, applying its three pronged theory of change. As Sightsavers enters the second phase of this project, help it ensure sustainable results by contributing your experiences and considering how you can make projects disability-inclusive.
