One of the programs that Rwenzori information centres network (RIC-NET) implements is the community empowerment and youth ,a program that aims at empowering ,youth ,young girls and women through skills training and provision of startup kits to enable them start up their own small businesses and be able to earn an income. RIC-NET supported Rwenzori pro-life and child care foundation(PROCAF) an organization that supports skills development for  vulnerable youth in Kabarole with a singer tailoring machine to enable the organization train other  vulnerable young girls who were not able to complete formal education .we believe that such training helps the youth acquire skills that will improve their lives through starting up their own small businesses.
