TORORO - A total of 200 teenage mothers have been equipped with skills in tailoring and garment making in Tororo municipality.
The training was part of President Yoweri Museveni's initiative in skilling Ugandans to be self-reliant.
The graduates, who underwent a six-month training, were each given a sewing machine and start-up capital.
Lydia Wanyoto, the national chairperson of the National Resistance Movement women's league, who presided over the passing out of the graduands, urged them to utilise the skills to develop themselves.
"The skills you acquired will reduce economic distress among women, hence solving domestic violence. Work as a team and look for tenders to supply uniforms in schools, churches, and companies," Wanyoto said.
