Abstract

A study on the establishment of a bicycle assembling and selling project for vulnerable youth above 20 was conducted using a case of Humuliza Organization in Nshamba and Biilabo wards in Muleba District in Kagera Region. The main objective of this study was to assess the influence of NGOs in supporting vulnerable children and its contribution in changing their lives both economically and socially. The study applied non-sampling probability where by the sample size of 100 respondents was selected. Data for the study were collected using interviews, observation, questionnaires and focused group discussion. SPSS computer programme was used to analyze the collected data. It was found that the support provided by NGOs to vulnerable children has brought changes even though it is not enough to satisfy all needs. Before the establishment of Humuliza Organization, vulnerable youth were not able to access basic needs like food, health services, school materials and shelter. With the support from Humuliza Organization vulnerable youth are now able to access social services. Among problems facing vulnerable children food and shelter are still acute ones. The Organization is facing the problem of inadequate funds to support all children in need. Also youth above 20 years are not eligible to continue getting support most of them are loose truck since they are used to receive. It is recommended that more support and provision of basic needs to vulnerable children is still required. Much attention to youth above 20 years is vital unless the support from the little age will be nothing to them since they fail where to start after the organizations stopping supporting them. This will be reduced if there will be project successes.
