Project evaluation by Batonga Sep 10, 2015 - 3:11 AM EDT

Due to lack of continued funding, the project had to strengthen its existing the management skills of existing 18 entrepreneurs involved in agriculture and horticulture due to their potential to sustain their enterprises. The other small business including those involved in brick making, building materials could not get continued support only through mentorship to keep their small business running with less support form Batonga Foundation. The youth will all continue to received mentorship in running their small enterprises from our partners and Batonga Foundation to keep the project running. We will also continue to solicit for more resources apart form UN-Habitat Youth Fund to sustain youth initiatives
