Standard Chartered Bank in partnership with Challenges Uganda launched a 3-month youth employability programme under its Futuremakers initiative dubbed Youth to Work Programme.
At Standard Chartered, they believe everyone deserves the opportunity to learn, earn and grow. Globally, more than 200 million young people often disproportionately impacted by the challenges of inequality are out of work or live in low-income poverty, and that’s just not good enough.
With the Futuremakers by Standard Chartered initiative, the bank invites disadvantaged young people especially girls and the visually impaired to gain new skills and expertise to improve their chances of getting a job or starting their own business.
The objective of the Youth to Work programme is to position and equip young people with skills and opportunities to create economic and employment changes across the economy for sustainable and measurable impact. In this regard, young people will become implementers of change, rather than standalone programme beneficiaries.
