Problem statement

Uganda is dominated by youth who are unemployed or underemployed. They spend most of their time gambling or doing less productive work for their survival. These are the youth who need our urgent help.

Many engage in criminal activities to earn a living. However, majority have fear of the poor social-economic life style after abandoning their previous dubious source of income. Worse still, some are abandoned by their family members and are regarded as social evils.

Because of this, it becomes very difficult for youth to live a contructive crime free life and those who have done so may not remain committed to their God because of the social-economic problems.

In view of the above, we have come up with a program of technical skill empowerment of youths and other vulnerable groups for social economic transformation for self sustenance and remain committed faithfuls to God.


Vocational &Technical Skills Development Project

This project has contributed to building Uganda’s human capital skills development capacity, particularly in education, agriculture and vocational and technical skills. This venture has creating and responded to labor market demands and propelled productivity nationally in Uganda.

The project objectives are to fight alerming levels of unemployment among young people, improve equitable access, quality and relevance of skills training and research that has led to job creation and self-employment. This is a life changing venture!

Ugandan President - Gen. Yoweri Museveni, during his latest “State of Nation Address” said that “…only 300,000 people are employed by Uganda government out of nearly 40 million people in Uganda and we do not have any vacancies anywhere in government offices. I strongly advise young people to create jobs instead of looking for employment…” President Museveni said.

UNICEF recent report indicated that 68% of Ugandans are totally unemployed and living in abject poverty. The ABA Foundation conducted a research on how to fight the alarming levels of unemployment and poverty among Ugandan youths and we carried out a training needs appraisal in which young adults including University graduates, school drop-outs, single mothers, widows, and other vulnerable groups opted for vocational and technical skills development project.

The provision of Vocational and Technical Skills (tailoring and garment cutting, secretarial, painting, art and design, agriculture, brick laying, carpentry and joinery etc) to young adults in Uganda has not only catered for self–sustenance, but also employment which has enabled them to generate income and fight household poverty. Our biggest problem at the moment is that we are operating under meager financial envelope amidst a lot of social responsibility!

This initiative marked the beginning of what has become a fruitful and rewarding linkage between the world of industry and academia. We have strongly contributed to the development of a relevant and highly skilled workforce that has propelled productivity and national development. We shall continue to emphasize the need for a strengthened linkage with industries in order to have our skilled graduates, who are very productive so that Uganda continues to benefits from the East African Community integration.

Recent research by Human Rights Watch indicated that 89% of Refugees and People staying in Internally Displaced Peoples Camps engage in prostitution which has led to an increase in HIV / AIDS scourge. These Technical and Vocational Training Centers are meant to fight the risky behavior, empower them to fight house hold Poverty and Combat the spread of HIV / AIDS.

We empower Women, Youth, Children, Widows, Refugees, and Disabled through Training programs and Capacity building. We run a Home Care Bay and Rehabilitation Centers for orphans and destitute children especially those running away from the civil war in the volatile world’s newest nation of South Sudan.

We raise Awareness in the Communities against HIV / AIDS and other Killer Diseases. We also promote Awareness among Communities by running Development Programs to Fight House Hold Poverty and Promotion of Income Generation at Homestead Level.

To strengthen and equip God’s people with the word of God, and to encourage their involvement in fighting house hold poverty and world evangelism by:

  • Providing Bible Courses and literature, media, leadership training, Socio-Economic development through raising awareness and intercessory prayers;
  • Preparing the Body of Christ living in threatened or unstable areas to face persecution and suffering; and to support them in time of need.
  • Educating and mobilizing God's people living in the free world to identify with threatened and persecuted Christians and be actively involved in assisting them.
  • Helping destitute children, orphans, widows, refugees, widowers, disabled, disadvantaged, down-trodden, outcast, and unwanted people. James 1:27.

We do so because we believe when one member suffers, all members suffer with it (1 Corinthians 12:26), all doors are open and we strongly believe God will accomplish the objectives of ABA Foundation.

Uganda has been through several Humanitarian Crisis including Civil Wars, Food Crisis, Floods, Refugee influx, Persistent Droughts, Human Trafficking, HIV/AIDS Pandemic,SARS, Ebola, Corona Virus (Covid-19) etc. This has left the People in Uganda in Great Need of Resources, including Medical Resources to help with the Major effects these Crises have had on the overall Health of the Nation.

We equip the Vulnerable Groups with Technical Vocational Training Skills to enable them earn a living. Recent research indicated that 75% of Refugees and People staying in Tent Cities or Internally Displaced People's Camps engage in prostitution which has led to an increase in HIV / AIDS scourge in the Country. The Technical Vocational Training Centers are meant to Empower them, Fight Poverty and Combat the spread of HIV / AIDS.

ABA Foundation – Volunteers are making a difference in some of the world’s poorest communities, living and working alongside local people on projects of lasting value. Volunteers join us at different stages of their lives and with different passions. Yet they all want a challenge and they are united by their determination to make a difference. Typically, they walk away with a broad set of skills that help them to make progress in their personal and professional lives and carry on making a positive contribution to the causes they really care about.

These skills include the ability to negotiate, to motivate, to listen and learn from other cultures, to plan and manage budgets – and so much more. Half the world is under 25. We know that with the right opportunity, young people have huge potential to make an impact in their communities. With ABA Foundation, you can be part of this experience too – and show yourself and others what you’re made of.
