Strengthening Social Cohesion and Stability in Slum Populations
Youth unemployment is a daunting challenge across the world, with a worrying link to a rising incidence of radicalization and violent extremism.
IOM Uganda’s SSCoS project, financed by the European Union, seeks to change lives in slums with jobless youths at risk of radicalization.
The 42-month project started in August 2016 in Bwaise, but is also being implemented in Kisenyi, Katwe and Kabalagala. SSCoS’s overall objective is to tackle the root causes of inter-communal conflict in slum populations by addressing the sources of grievances – such as unemployment – and by strengthening community cohesion around shared development assets.
The project is being delivered together with the inaugural implementing partner, the Bwaise-based Action for Fundamental Change and Development (AFFCAD). Third-party implementing partners include Xavier Project, ACTogether and YARID.
