The Youth Livelihood Programme (YLP) is a Rolling Government of Uganda Programme, targeting the poor and unemployed youth in all the districts in the country. The Programme is implemented under the Ministry of Gender, Labour and Social Development (MGLSD). It is financed initially from Government own resources (with a possibility of development partners’ support in the future). The initial budget estimate for the Rolling Programme is Uganda Shillings 265 billion in the next 5 years.
YLP is a community demand-driven Programme that is implemented with guidance from the Central Government and the Local Governments. The funds are advanced to the Youth Interest Groups (YIG) in form of a Revolving Fund in order to increase outreach and enhance sustainability of the Programme.
