About GOAL DYNAMIC Programme:

systems.  Youth already engaged in on-farm activities will move from
subsistence to more productive and profitable farming. DYNAMIC will increase
the employability of Ugandan youth by facilitating access to demand driven
technical skills, knowledge and market information that directly respond to
business opportunities in the agricultural sector. In parallel, DYNAMIC will
link agribusinesses and microenterprises to market opportunities and diverse
stakeholders, and ensure they can utilize appropriate (formal and informal)
financial services. DYNAMIC’s design recognizes that youth are a diverse age
group requiring tailored interventions to fit their stage in life and
transition into the workforce. In particular, DYNAMIC will ensure that
participating youth, particularly young women, are engaging in appropriate,
safe, and productive economic opportunities.
