KANUNGU GALZ WOMENS SKILLS CENTER
There is global evidence that many social benefits accrue to a nation that makes investments in health, education and well-being of women and especially the girl child, this is what Kanungu Galz network is seeking to achieve through the proposed Kanungu Skills Center.
The goal of the project is to improve “employability” of the young people in Kanungu district with particular focus on girls who never went to school and those with modest education (dropouts). The intention is to equip these girls with productive skills through vocational training in areas that have potential markets within Kanungu and its environs.
