We've received a second funding request of £2,400 from Youth Link Networks, a non-profit organisation we completed due diligence for and funded (£750) in 2020.
Youth Link Networks operates in Uganda and creates opportunities for skills development and education for young people, increasing their chances of employment and training.
In 2022, they successfully passed six girls through their sewing project, which provided girls who were not in education, employment, or training with technical skills in sewing and financial literacy. However, they could not provide the girls with sewing machine starter kits, which would enable them to start their own businesses and receive continued support from the organisation.
Youth Link Networks is asking for £2,400 in funding to cover starter kits for 12 girls, at a total cost of £200 per girl. They will cover the remaining £100.
