Help bring Financial Stability to Uganda

Women Becoming Emerging Leaders

Alice Norah Lajwa of Opportunity Uganda is a graduate of the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Women Emerging Leaders Program. Alice says, “I want to see people’s lives transformed. What I’ve learned in this program will help me transform the lives of my women clients. [...] I try to encourage women to save. The more they save, the more they will be able to gain financial stability. [...] This will really help them. Not only them but their families as well.”

10,000 Women is a five-year investment by Goldman Sachs to provide 10,000 underserved women around the world with a business and management education. 10,000 Women operates through a network of more than 70 academic and non-profit partners to develop locally relevant coursework for students and to improve the quality and capacity of business education. Investing in women is one of the most effective ways to reduce inequality and facilitate inclusive economic growth. Investing in education for women has a significant multiplier effect, leading to more productive workers, healthier and better-educated families, and ultimately to more prosperous communities.
Opportunity International partners with 10,000 Women and Goldman Sachs to provide opportunities for graduates of the program to use their knowledge to train women in their own communities.
