In February 2023 our first rural project training women outside of Kampala got underway. Due to the success of an earlier project bringing women from the Jinja area of Eastern Uganda into Kampala for training, we decided to take things a step further. Last year we spent a day recruiting women from Mpigi one of the poorest areas of Uganda with a high incidence of teenage pregnancy and gender based violence. Thanks to our long partnership with the Namasuba College of Commerce instead of bringing the women into Kampala we have been able to arrange a training course in Kawami, which is much nearer to their homes. The women stay at the college during the week and return home to see their families at the weekend. We will be carefully monitoring their progress and hope that this will be the first of many such courses.
