Youth Empowerment Through Agriculture (YETA)
January 2018 – December 2018

Donor/ Development Partner: NCBA-CLUSA/MASTERCARD FOUNDATION

Youth in Northern Uganda develop sustainable commercial enterprises
The YETA project model was developed taking into account a context of challenges from which Northern Uganda is emerging after 23 years of conflict. Northern Uganda remains the “poorest region in the country with the lowest rates of education, the worst access to schools, the lowest rates of wage employment, and one of the lowest rates of skills training.” Many youth were raised in Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camps, lacking access to education, employment opportunities, or the structure of a community which imparts critical life skills. This project targets to integrate Agricultural skills and value chain processing with Foundation skills including Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights and Numeracy.

To improve the SRHR of young People (10-24) by increasing Young people’s uptake of SRH services.

The project builds upon the best practices and current interventions of the implementing partners, including the SRHR Alliance -UFBR programme, aiming to overcome the barriers to access sexual and reproductive health services that young people face as a result of: lack of quality services; lack of a sense of empowerment and knowledge; and social stigma and discrimination. RHU will use the 6 month programme to lay ground for the new Get Up Speak Out Intervention (GUSO) that will continue with the key components of the theory of change previously used by the ASK/UFBR interventions. The project will be implemented in Bugiri and Iganga districts of Uganda.
