Presided Yoweri Museveni last week presided over the graduation of 1,760 students who completed a three-month women and youth empowerment skills training in Wakiso District.
The training, facilitated by Wakiso Woman MP Rosemary Sseninde, saw the trainees get skills in hair dressing, fashion and design, decoration and baking.
“The government will continue to do its work of developing the country. For example we have worked on the road from Kalagi to Kasangati and other roads using our own money”.
“However, development is for everyone. Individuals must look at their own wealth. For example if you own a maize mill, it creates you wealth”, he said.
President Museveni added that;since 1995, government has initiated poverty eradication programmes like Entandikwa, NAADs, Youth and Women Funds and Operation Wealth Creation among others.
“Some leaders have argued that these programmes have not performed well due to lack of skills. It is why the government introduced Skilling Uganda”.
I therefore commend Hon Sseninde for supplementing government efforts. She is helping eradicate poverty by imparting skills and creating employment.
I will support this project in all ways possible”, added the President. By Ambrose Gahene
