Fundraising Volunteer (Sustainable Alternatives Hub)
Sustainable Alternatives Hub
In Uganda, the total unemployed persons in the country is 64 percent. Given the rapid growth of the Ugandan population—three-quarters of the population are below the age of 30 years , 82% of these are unemployed . Now imagine people with disabilities , after thinking about women and girls with disabilities : People with disabilities face challenges in the labor markets. There is a substantial gap between integrating people with disabilities into the labor force and their actual participation levels. That means women with disabilities are more than twice as likely to be unemployed than are their non-disabled counterparts. The fact is that the youth are getting better educated through higher access to primary and secondary education, a stronger focus on job creation for this group of people cannot be overemphasized. But yet the strongest focus for people living with disabilities is very urgent.
Sustainable Alternatives Hub empowers unemployed youth & women living with disabilities in Uganda to solve their everyday community challenges and turn them into economic opportunities that benefit individuals, the community and the environment through incubation, investment and acceleration of social innovations in the economic development of women, green economy, waste management and digitalization.
