Challenge

In Mukono, women bear almost all responsibility for meeting basic needs of the family, yet are systematically denied the resources, information and freedom of action they need to fulfill this responsibility. The vast majority of the poor in Mukono are women. Two-thirds of the illiterates are female. Of the millions of school age children not in school, the majority are girls. And today, HIV/AIDS is rapidly becoming a woman's disease. Providing job opportunities could change these trends.

Solution

This project will address economic opportunity for women by providing training and individualized instruction in entrepreneurship, marketing techniques for small businesses, micro finance, and the implementation of income-generating activities (IGAs), including farming, vegetable growing, chicken rearing, piggery, mushroom growing, tailoring and design, arts and crafts, and hair dressing and styling.

Long-Term Impact

This project will enable 200 women to engage in income-generating activities. The ability to increase their income and invest in their families and communities will then help to improve their families' health and well-being.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
