From Skills to Success: Community First's Livelihood Program

we are dedicated to empowering individuals in the Somali community of Kisenyi, Kampala, through valuable skills training and livelihood opportunities. This program aims to equip community members with essential skills that can enhance their personal development and contribute to their economic well-being.


Computer Skilling

In today’s digital age, computer literacy has become an essential skill for personal and professional growth. Recognizing this, our Skilling and Livelihood Program includes Computer Skilling, where members of the community have the opportunity to learn valuable computer skills. From basic computer operations to more advanced applications, we provide hands-on training to empower individuals with the knowledge needed to navigate the digital world confidently. Through this program, we strive to bridge the digital divide and open up new avenues for career prospects and personal growth


Women's Skilling

As part of our commitment to fostering women’s empowerment and economic independence, we offer a range of skills training opportunities for Somali ladies. Through our Women’s Skilling initiative, participants engage in various activities, including crocheting, liquid soap detergent making, and heena (henna) application. These practical skills not only provide avenues for creativity but also hold the potential to generate income and support their families. By nurturing these talents, we aim to promote self-reliance and confidence among the women in our community.

At Community First, we believe that every individual deserves the opportunity to acquire skills that can positively impact their lives and create a brighter future. Our Skilling and Livelihood Program is designed to empower community members by equipping them with practical skills and knowledge that can enhance their quality of life and open doors to new opportunities.
