Welcome to our Teenage Mothers Empowerment Program, an initiative dedicated to transforming the lives of young mothers in the urban slums of Kampala. At Kyusa, we understand the unique challenges these brave young women face and are committed to empowering them through education, skills training, and support.

Our Mission
Our mission is to provide teenage mothers with the digital literacy and employable skills they need to secure decent employment, achieve financial independence, and create better futures for themselves and their children. We aim to bridge the digital divide and open doors to new opportunities.

Why This Program Matters
The COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately impacted young mothers, many of whom have been forced out of school and into precarious informal jobs to support their families. This program addresses the urgent need for practical, accessible education and skills training, helping these young mothers break free from the cycle of poverty and vulnerability.

What We Offer:

  • Digital Literacy Training: Comprehensive courses on digital skills, internet safety, and online communication.
  • Computer Skills Development: Training in essential computer applications, including word processing, spreadsheets, and presentation software.
  • Access to Vocational Skilling: Practical, hands-on training in various vocations to enhance employability.
  • Psychosocial Support: Counseling and support services to address the emotional and mental health needs of teenage mothers.
  • Linkages to Job Opportunities: Connections with potential employers and job placement services.
  • Ongoing Coaching and Capacity Building: Continuous mentorship and skill enhancement to ensure long-term success.
  • Hands-On Experience: Practical sessions using our 20 functional laptops, ensuring that every participant gains real-world experience.
  • Supportive Learning Environment: A safe and encouraging space for young mothers to learn, grow, and connect with peers.

Our Impact Goals
In 2024, we aim to:

  1. Equip 50 teenage mothers, with essential digital skills.
  2. Achieve a 70% job placements and access to decent employment opportunities.
