YAPO has reached 5 streets of Mabwepande ward which include, Mbopo, Mji Mpya, Mabwepande, Bunju B and Kihonzile. Each street had an approximate of 60 or more learners enrolled in this project over the period of three consecutive months (January to April) with training on handcraft skills, entrepreneurship, Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR), Social Rights, HIV/AIDS and Gender Equality.
