YOUTH AND WOMEN SOCIO-ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT
Through the Girls Empowerment and Livelihoods Improvement (GELI) project funded
by A Bridge for Girls Funds, Save Generations Organization intervened in empowering
economically youth especially girls and women for their livelihoods improvement and self reliance. They also acquire mind-set and behaviour change training on different topics such as gender, GBV, women’s rights, entrepreneurship, business, and financial literacy/ saving, and computer literacy to build their capacity. SGO supports them with start-up toolkits and help them to start their income generating activities, and it provides to them mentorship and linkage services. As a result, now 4 cooperatives, including 1 women cooperative and 3 youth cooperatives for income generation were formed by youth and women in this program from Rusororo sector, Gasabo district .
