This project is intended to boost the establishment of Village Savings and Loans Associations (VSLAs) in Budaka District, Uganda. It will build on the success of the already established Associations which have proven to be a lifeline in community members efforts to improve their livelihoods. Even though the activities of the VSLAs have been constrained by COVID 19 and the businesses they support have been reduced, they continue to play an important social and economic role in the community.
COVID 19 has also put constraints on ICA:UK's activities in the UK, and the small amount donated to this project so far demonstrates how currently people's minds are more focused on coping with the pandemic themselves, or supporting the most vulnerable in their own families and communities.
We intend to keep the project open and to launch a further appeal later in the year.
