Twenty participants including five from Rrwamwanja refugee settlement have now graduated from the Finnish Entrepreneurship Diploma Program. The program is based on the Finnish Further Qualification for Entrepreneurs and it was organized by Finn Church Aid  and Omnia Education Partnerships with UNHCR funding.

The program was customized to local needs and together with the Ugandan experts. Providing hands-on competence in planning and launching a business as well as productization, the  program opens up new opportunities for immediate employment and earning for Ugandans and refugees.

The program also responded  to the urgent need to build sustainable training capacity. OEP and FCA trained and certified the graduates as trainers to continue training the Entrepreneurship Diploma Program in the refugee settlements in Uganda.
