Call For Application – Module 1: Understanding Poverty in Rural Uganda

The overall objective of our CPAR Uganda Ltd “Mentoring Young Adults in Uganda Into Innovators” programme is to produce active Ugandan citizens who will proactively innovate, initiate, and facilitate processes that will lead to improving standards of living among the poor in Uganda and that will ameliorate deprivation in their communities. Our programme consists of four modules: Understanding Poverty in Rural Uganda; Applying Development Methodologies and Theories to Rural Uganda; The Dynamics of Uganda’s Rural Economy; and Initiating and Sustaining Innovations for Positive Change in Rural Uganda.

This call for applications is for participation in the sessions of the first module scheduled to start on Monday, 6th January 2020 and ending on Saturday, 1st February 2020. The sessions will be conducted by our highly experienced trainers who will facilitate an in-depth participatory analysis of poverty that will cover the following three broad topics: Conceptions and Measurements of Poverty; Causes and Symptoms of Poverty; and Where to start in the “Fight against Poverty”. There will be 11 days of non-residential training that will be conducted at our Lira Learning Centre; and 12 days of research and fieldwork to be conducted within the communities of Lira and in utilisation of our Prof. Fred Opio Ekong Memorial Library that is located within our Lira Learning Centre.

Our mentoring programme primarily targets young adults (persons aged 20-39 years) who have had tertiary level formal education. They could be students or those who have recently completed their formal tertiary education; of whom some could already be in formal employment; while others could be seeking employment; and others could be exploring self-employment. Interested young adults are invited to complete and to return applications by post or hand-delivery not later than Friday, 22nd November 2019. The application form is available to download here; and or from our Lira Learning Centre.
