​SKILLING YOUTH FOR EMPLOYMENT IN AGRIBUSINESS (SKY) PROJECT

The Skilling Youth for Employment in Agri-business (SKY) project, implemented by AVSI in Uganda with funding from the Netherlands Embassy aims to enhance sustainable creation of employment for youth in the agribusiness sector in the areas of Lake Kyoga, Elgon, Lake Victoria Crescent, and South-Western Uganda. Through SKY, AVSI will create employment opportunities for 4,000 youth, which will generate a total annual income of $4 million while supporting the initiatives of the Government of Uganda to develop a market, and social and gender-responsive agribusiness skilling. This goal will be achieved through expanding the number of basic and mid-level market oriented opportunities, increasing the quality, relevance and efficiency of agro-institutions, and other skills providers.
