Teaching teenagers and young adults a skill that will enable them to provide for themselves is one of the best ways to help them and their community.

GO’s grant of $8,050 provided Tuseme with the seed money to establish a bicycle repair business. The grant paid for the construction of a garage hut, all the necessary tools to start the business and two new bicycles to help train the students how to repair bikes.

This micro-business will not only generate needed income, but it will provide the youth with valuable vocational training, helping them acquire employable skills for their future and help instill pride.
