Helping rural women thrive in the pandemic

As you have likely seen, Uganda continues to face a devastating surge in COVID-19 cases. Poor women living in extreme poverty in Uganda and especially Gulu have been hit especially hard by the disease. However, what Covid-19 has taught us is to be resilient and carry on the best way we can! Uganda may officially end the second countrywide lockdown at the end of this year, some countries have opened their borders and everyone is trying to carry on with their lives as "normally" as possible!

What does all this mean for our Self Help Groups in Gulu? Well they can meet again, particularly if it is outside with strict following of Standard operating procedures (SOPs) and they must really try to start/carry on with their Income Generating Businesses if at all possible as this is the best way to improve their standards of living.

The exciting news this coming year - 2022 is that we plan to reach out and involve more women in the community. The Covid-19 pandemic has left many women in the community jobless and as such, many have faced gender based violence. Empowering these women will help them navigate through such unintended consequences and make extreme poverty a thing of the past.

This is our final report for this year. Please stay safe, be kind and if you can, make a donation to our project!
