Raised Remaining

Since 2008, Women’s Global Empowerment Fund (WGEF) has been providing economic social and educational opportunities for women in Northern Uganda. WGEF uses a credit-plus microfinance model that provides microloans to women alongside literacy, leadership development, agribusiness, and health initiatives. 

While we are retiring the HPI initative on Global Giving, we are continuting to move forward with the project thru other funding mechanisms. Creating awareness and products to ensure women have access critical information and services, products and opportunties ensuring mentrual health. 

In addition to this project, WGEF will continue to provide eonomic, social and political opportunities to women who are rebuilding and recovering their lives in northern Uganda. Access to basic human services is the right of every human being; WGEF strives to address ineqaulity and marginalization thru meaningful and relelvant programs. 

Thank you.

Karen Sugar, Executive Director
