Primary School Youth

Apprenticeship Youth


Jesca, 17, is one of five children. She had to drop out of school in 2011 because her family was unable to pay for her school expenses. But now, thanks to a scholarship from Friends of TASO, Jesca is now training to become a salonist. She is working as an apprentice to a salonist in Mbale, and hopes to one day own her own salon.
