Entrepreneurship Education in Uganda: A Randomized Control Trial

This study aims to carry out an evaluation of the long-term impacts of an innovative school-based intervention designed to enhance the ability of youth to engage and succeed in both formal employment and entrepreneurial activities in Uganda, ultimately leading to improvements in livelihood. The findings will inform future interventions (in Uganda, Rwanda, and Kenya) to help more young people overcome obstacles to successful entrepreneurship and labor market participation, such as gender-related barriers, thereby improving their livelihoods and socioeconomic security. The study will cover impacts of the intervention on socio-emotional skills, access to finance and markets, ability to generate demand for products and services, as well as entrepreneurial, workforce, and life success.
