This research work is a study on the contribution of livelihood programs on the lives of wives of soldiers. The research design adopted was the survey method using questionnaire with beneficiaries randomly selected from the population of the barracks making a total sample of 50 respondents who were issued self-administered questionnaires by the researcher. Data collected was analyzed using inferential statistics, frequency table and percentages. The study found out that ROWOSA mainly has four skilling programs in Katabi Airforce barracks and they include ICT, tailoring, hairdressing and bakery and the women revealed that they have to a greater extent improved their livelihoods through those programs through getting marketable vocational skills, receiving entrepreneurship skills among others. The study recommends that funders should train women on resilient and management skills so as to be able to apply the skills they acquire and the association should provide the trainees with startup capital for venturing into different fields they trained for.
