Current Challenges / needs

  • Looking out for partners to team with us in helping the rural women in Uganda.
  • We still lack adequate capital to boost the women project activities.
  • More sewing machines are needed. It is our desire to bless every woman with a new sewing machine after the training to take home with them and start a small sewing business to support them for a continuous self-sustainability.
  • For catering service business, the women lack essential facilities like tents, plastic chairs, tables, a lineup of different utensils, and a service van for the transportation of their materials when hired to go out for business.
  • Need to widen the market for the women African handmade crafts.
Supporting their families
