Dokolo – Jamalife Helpers Global Limited, a non governmental organization in Uganda with its headquarters in Belgium says it’s planing to transform Northern Uganda.
The big plan includes “manufacturing domestic chemicals, scholastic materials and fighting poverty and unemployment among youth.”
William Okongo, Jamalife’s trade and business director confirmed the development on Thursday at St. Francis Vocational Institute in Dokolo district.
He and his team were training over 150 people from Dokolo North Constituency on how to make liquid soap and jik.
He said: “Our dreams of bringing closer service delivery will come true and reach final consumers thorough the registered coordinator in all sub-countries.”
Mr. Okongo calls for government’s intervention by supporting them to make them “penetrate villages and change mindset of lazy person if government wants to achieve their Vision2040.”
Jaspher Okello, the northern regional coordinator of the same organization, advised locals to always welcome change in society apart from dwelling only on one thing.
According to Okello, there is poverty in Amolatar district as a result of “seeing only fishing as the glorious source of wealth yet there are very many productive activities that they can join and boost their livelihood standards.”
Andrew Ouni, 68, from Agwata sub county who benefited from the training, said the “knowledge will help us to create jobs for our children.”
The aging beneficiary tipped other beneficiaries to be social beside having knowledge “if they are to succeed.”
