A Working Future

This project, under Plan International, focuses on educating youths on making and saving money. We are implementing this project in two districts, Nyamagana and Ilemela. We gather youths aged 15-24 in these districts and create groups, with about 60% girls, 35% boys, and 5% disabled youths. First they are educated on how to control their finances and other major life skills, such as on entrepreneurship and sex education. Also, they are taught about DOT: digital opportunity trusts. Then, they can choose to get training on farming or small business. Once the training and education is complete, they are connected to loan institutions, receive a loan, and begin their own businesses.
