Aims of ETC at GDPU:
The aim of this project is to improve livelihoods of young people with disability by improving the strength, capacity and resilience of the businesses that they have set up.
B: GDPU develops its capacity to become a business support hub for people with disability in the Gulu area.
Monitoring and Evaluation:
A Monitoring and Evaluation framework and system will be in place from the outset. A Monitoring and Evaluation specialist based in Gulu (who also worked on the YDP)has been involved from the beginning of this project and he worked with GDPU on setting up a suitable monitoring framework. Measuring and demonstrating the benefits of the support provided in the pilot stage are vital for demonstrating the suitability of the project approach and therefore enabling applications for subsequent funding.
A: Groups that were set up with funding and support as part of the youth development programme after training at GDPU become successful and self-sufficient. This will be measured by – improved turnover, a target level of savings achieved (this should be a significant amount) support and training given to other PWD
B: GDPU develops its capacity to become a business support hub for people with disability in the Gulu area – measured by the number of support activities delivered through a sustainable ongoing funding model
