UPHLS has been empowering Youth With Disabilities (YWDs) with both soft and technical skills as part of sharpening the youth’s mind toward self-resilience and sustainable development. Learners are taught how to work effectively as individuals or in groups while striving towards understanding and fulfilling the requirements of their chosen qualification. By identifying their own personal values, strengths and areas of challenge or weakness then be able to effectively use or address them, to later be able to set goals and personal development plans. These last two are one of the methods used for the youth to identify their preferred way of learning, take initiative for learning new skills, and be able to monitor their own progress. From 2014, through projects entitled “EmployAble” and “HUGUKA DUKORE AKAZI KANOZE (HDAK)”, 1473 vulnerable youth including YWDs from across the country have benefited from those skills development programs.
