PROBLEM: Economic Dependency

Globally, Uganda is ranked 3rd in the world for the country with the highest economic dependency rate (99.5%). This is attributed to multiple barriers to economic independence, which include among others the extremely high youth unemployment – 83% for people 15-24 years old. Despite the numerous efforts to reduce this trend, economic dependency among women and girls remains high as a result of limited access to resources such as capital, land, and the skills needed to get employment. As a result, women and girls are unable to access economic opportunities, quality education, and health care services.

The continuing trend of economic dependency among women and girls not only escalates poverty in the family but also breeds gender-based violence and gender inequality, maternal and infant mortality and drives women and girls to adopt other means of survival, such as adopting odd jobs, early marriages as well as sticking to abusive relationships, a multi-generational phenomenon if not tackled.
