    Help Overcome High Unemployment Rates

    In Uganda, jobs in villages and employment in cities is scarce. As a response to this need, the Collegiate Education Program (CEP) was born. CEP aims at boosting vocational education as a means of overcoming high unemployment rates by providing an opportunity for hands on, skilled education that allows youth to compete in the job market or become job creators themselves. CEP features program support in: veterinary/agriculture, construction, mechanics, hotel management, carpentry and tailoring. The program encourages students to return to the village and serve their communities once they graduate.
