My name is Allan Zirintusa. At the time I joined Educate!, had no business idea. In our Educate! Club we developed innovative business ideas, such as rabbit farming, poultry, piggery, shops salons etc. I chose piggery and got some capital from the savings I was making from my pocket money. I managed to buy a female and male piglets. Now I have 10 pigs. Each pig costs about 500,000 Shillings. I take care of my daily needs and am planning to expand my project. My business has been a great success. My future career is to be a social entrepreneur.
Accountant to be!
My name is Ahumuza Victoria and I started my own bakery business. I make daddies, cake and bread. Making daddies, cake and bread has always been my favourite at home. After school in 2013, I sat at home for almost three months. I learnt from a friend how to make different kinds of snacks such as cookies, doughnuts, daddies, cake and bread. I prepared daddies for my younger sister at home. My mother advised me to make daddies for sale at our grocery shop. I prepared at least 50 packets of daddies per week for a selling price of 500 Shillings each. Later I expanded the business by supplying other shops in Jinja Town. Even after getting a job, I still make daddies, cake and bread every weekend and distribute them to my clients. I now make 200 packets of daddies per week. The income is enough to cater for my monthly needs, and I can even save some money too. My future career is to be an accountant.
My name is Mayambala Denis. I start work at 6.00am every day and press three packets of wheat ﬂour. I prepare about 100 chapattis per day, which I sell at Lweza – Entebbe Road Opposite Rios Bar for 500 Shillings a piece. With this income, I managed to build a wooden stall and make Rolex, Kikomando, fried and Boilded Eggs. Now I press ﬁve packets of wheat ﬂour daily and make around 80,000 Shillings a day. I am also supplying chapattis to restaurants and cafes around my place. I have a good business in the morning because, a lot of people take their breakfast at my stall. With my income, I am supporting myself comfortably. With some savings am planning to join University and my future career is to be an Accountant.
My name is Mukanga Moses. I am an Educate! Graduate from Sipi Secondary School – Kapchorwa 2015. In the year 2014 I bought six weaned pigs and today I have 15 pigs. I am selling each piglet at 50,000 Shillings and a big one at 250,000 Shillings. I want to be a professional secondary teacher.
Peanut Butter Producer
My name is Priscilla Masika. I started processing peanut butter using the traditional method which we use at home, which entails grinding peanuts with a grinding stone. While I was part of the Educate! program in school, I made peanut butter to the students. I earn a lot of money at the beginning of each term. I ground peanut butter for 12,000 shillings a kilogram. With this and the help of my parents I managed to secure a grinding machine of 2,000,000 Shillings. Today I produce about 50 kilograms of peanut butter, and ﬁll it into containers. The sales price per tin varies from 10,000 to 15,000 Shillings. With the earnings I can support myself and even pay part of my tertiary tuition. After my course, my dream is to be a business woman.
My name is Deo Irumba. Upon completion of my Secondary School, I established a CBO (People’s Integrated Efforts for Development Organisation) located in Kyanaisoke Trading Centre in Uganda. The CBO provides computer services like, secretarial services, computer training, internet, video coverage and photography. Through a network established by Educate! I have got financial support from Queen’s Social Investment Loan Initiative. I am now employing seven other youth and the business is expanding. My future dream job is to work in a financial institution.
Liguid Soap Guru
My name is Balidawa Edward. I am Educate! Graduate of Duhaga Senior Secondary School – Hoima 2013, And a year two mark mentor 2016. In this program, I was taught many skills but the one I mastered was in making liquid soap. During my vacation, I continued making liquid soap up to now. My liquid soap is very good and it’s the reason why I am famous! My biggest innovation is that I sell it in my shop at wholesale prices, rather than running around and selling it to shopping centres. Very many people buy my liquid soap and resell it to their customers. I have been able to get contracts from schools I used the money I earn to support my University Education. I am studying a bachelor in Procurement and Logistics and I want to be a procurement officer in future. Thanks to Educate! For connecting me to Queen’s Social Investment Loan, I have been able to boost my business. My dream is to be a social business entrepreneur.
Classic Book Enterprise
My name is Pauline Madudu and my dream was to become an entrepreneur. Today, I am the founder and CEO of Classic Books Enterprise located in Bugembe Town Council – Jinja Uganda. My Enterprise provides books, note books, hard boards, and notice boards. I am also the proud winner of 1.3 Million Shillings of Green Business Plan Competition 2016 organised by International Labour Organisation. My dream is to expand this project and employ more youth.
My name is Robert Mbata 25 age,My dream is to help fellow marginalized youth on how they can alleviate poverty through investing their man power on agriculture since its a very potential sector to our country, but this can be archived through commercial agriculture and processing agro-produce.
But again my country loss a huge number of youth who are affected from drug abuse this is very serious problems among youth in Tanzania.
Learning to Maximize Social Impact
Too often social change projects don't use data to inform decision making. Projects rely on what they think or feel, rather than evidence on what is most effective. My dream job is helping social change projects learn what is most effective, and share learning with each other. What is holding me back is a combination of personal constraints (like student loans) and industry constraints (not enough investment in learning = not enough jobs).
Hand up not hand out
There's a Chinese proverb that says, "When you give a man a fish, he eats for a day, but if you teach a man to fish, you feed him for a lifetime." I am passionate about helping people reach their fullest potential through economic development., education and community development. I want to work in the nonprofit sector on projects that helps build others up by providing them with the skills necessary to obtain a sustaining job, go to school, if they desire, and to help their family achieve their potential. While many factors and variables play into one's success, it's my goal to one day run a nonprofit that is doing this--helping others by teaching them the basic building blocks and tools so that they may achieve their dreams.
My dream career is becoming a Mechanical Engineer, this is because the career gives practical skills which last a lifetime.
I really admire people practicing Mechanical Engineering, the rich knowledge they have on vehicles and how well they are able to repair any type of engine has greatly inspired me.
In my community, I have people like Fidelis Moonga and Clive Chizwa who mentor and motivate me towards my ambition.
I see myself working for one of the reputable companies in my country like Toyota Zambia, and Auto-world.
Apart from being easily employed, the advantages of this profession are that it is ever practical, high paying and I can do some work at home or even set up my own garage in the community which would create job opportunities for the youth.
Furthermore, this career has no limit to time of service, when one gets older for instance they can still work as a consultant.
However, what stand in my way of living my dream are the high fees charged by higher learning institutions offering the course.
It is my hope that one day I will find sponsorship to study Mechanical Engineering because my family cannot afford to take me to the university.
