We empower Women and Girls in Uganda
Providing spaces, tools, and resources to enable them to participate effectively in individual and community development processes, thus, strengthening the economic resilience of individuals, their families, and communities to lead successful and dignified lives.
How we Do It
Our comprehensive approach includes training women and girls in business and entrepreneurial skills, revolving micro-loans, advocating for SRHR services, education, access to information, and promoting governance and leadership to strengthen social systems and empower women and girls.
According to the United Nations, 49% of people living in sub-Saharan Africa and 40% of people leaving in Northern Uganda live on less than $1.25/day. That’s not enough to pay for food, medicine, proper shelter or schooling for their children. Worldwide, 58 million primary school-age children are not in school; 60% are girls. Where we work in Uganda, public school is not free, and poverty is the leading cause of children not attending school. Learnmore
"My life was a survival game every day, straining every nerve to provide and educate my children. Then came the day I joined the business skills training. With just a small loan of $60, my world transformed. This became my gateway to participate in business, pay for my children’s school, and gather a community of sisters. Most importantly, it gave me something invaluable Confidence." Learnmore

Providing girls with affordable menstrual hygiene products empowers them to go to school all year round and gives them a better future. Learn more
