Innovator Mentoring Programme Launched

 

CPAR Uganda Ltd has chosen to contribute to human development through training and mentoring of young adults into innovators who are highly skilled and who have experienced a positive life-changing awakening process. Young adults who have had tertiary level formal education are the primary target group that CPAR Uganda strategically desires to train and to mentor – they could be students and they could as well be those who have recently completed their formal tertiary education.

It is the intention of CPAR Uganda to bequeath knowledge and skills to young adults while utilising a process that will lead the young adults to a rational analysis of their own attitudes and actions, as well as the existing social, cultural, economic and political relationships in their communities; an analysis that should motivate them to want to take action to contribute to the greater good.

CPAR Uganda thus proposes its Innovator Mentoring Programme to consist of four independent modules as follows:

·         Module 1: Understanding Poverty in Rural Uganda 

·         Module 2: Applying Development Methodologies and Theories to Rural Uganda

·         Module 3: The Dynamics of Uganda’s Rural Economy

·         Module 4: Initiating and Sustaining Innovations for Positive Change in Rural Uganda

Each module will be conducted in a period of one month and each module will consist of 11-days of non-residential training sessions and 12 days of fieldwork. The training sessions will be conducted utilising the best practice of self-reliant participatory methodologies in which the role of the trainers is primarily to facilitate discussions as opposed to top-down lecturing.

In partnership with the GlobalGiving Foundation and through GlobalGiving’s on-line crowd fundraising platform, CPAR Uganda has so far raised from individual donors funds that enable it to sponsor five young adults, disadvantaged students that are affiliated to universities in Greater Northern Uganda, to attend all the four modules of its Innovator Mentoring Programme. The budgeted sponsorship amount for each participant for all the four modules is UGX 3,200,000 (three million two hundred thousand shillings), about US$ 860 (eight hundred and sixty dollars).

There is a need therefore for CPAR Uganda to find sponsors for 20 young adults in order to attain the first cohort of 25 and therefore enable the start of the programme. CPAR Uganda intends to reach out to its fellow civil society organisations, academic institutions, individuals and others to sponsor young adults to participate in its Innovator Mentoring Programme.
