Economic Strengthening Programs in Bududa
Many families have low income to meet their household basic needs and have little left to invest in the education of children under their care. To break the vicious circle poor families unable to educate their children and because they can’t educate, they remain poor; PDI strongly believes in an economic strengthening approach as a strategy to make education a possible for all.
PDI’s economic strengthening approach to community development is a portfolio of strategies that grow physical, natural, financial and social assets as a key in reducing economic vulnerability of families and empowering them to provide essential needs and education of children and young adolescent youth in their care.
PDI Uganda is currently implementing two economic strengthening projects in Bududa district in Eastern Uganda. The projects are:
1) Village Savings and Loans Associations (VSLAs)
2) Small Business Loan Program
