Economic empowerment and vocational training

KCH recognises livelihood and socioeconomic development as key components of long-term rehabilitation. KCH’s economic empowerment programs exist to improve the socioeconomic status of CWDs and their families through skills including entrepreneurship and vocational training.

Skills include:
– Poultry and piggery farming
– Mushroom growing
– Bead and craft making
– Tailoring
– Baking
– Gardening

With the support of Barclays Bank of Uganda, KCH also provides business development support, financial literacy training and in some instances start-up capital to youths and parents of CWDs.

The KCH orthopaedic appliances workshop is also equipped to train CWDs in appliance production in order to ensure that they have the skills needed for sustainable income.
