Mainlevel consultants Alice van Caubergh and Lukas von Petersdorff-Campen travelled to Mityana district in Uganda to conduct a feasibility study advising the consortium and donors on whether the proposed “Zukunft Sichern” (Securing Future) programme is well founded and meets all identified needs. Their main objective for this project is to provide decision makers with sufficient information, on the opportunities and risks of the stated programme.
The study delivers the following:
The “Zukunft Sichern” (Securing Future) programme is collectively planned by Deutsche Stiftung Weltbevölkerung, Siemens Stiftung and Hanns R. Neumann Foundations to improve the prospects of young people in rural areas of East Africa. By uniting their expertise, networks and potentials for innovation as well as the cooperation of local development partners, the consortium intends to empower girls and boys to actively shape developmental processes and to have their voice heard in the respective policy processes.
Starting in Uganda, the programme will follow a holistic approach. This includes elements of economic empowerment, access to gender-sensitive health and social services, youth participation in decision-making, access to renewable energy and safe water and access to quality vocational for targeted rural youths (and their families) in Mityana district, Uganda.
