WHAT WE’RE DOING TO HELP
Our initial donation to Women’s Global Empowerment Fund will provide the following for women in Uganda:
- Microloans and business training for 1,400 women
- Literacy programs for 250 women
- Leadership development initiatives ensuring women have “a seat at the policy table”
- On-the-ground infrastructure and local staffing to support the program
This donation will enable WGEF to increase their offerings to women in Uganda by 50% in 2015.
