We provide grants to pay for specially selected women to attend training courses mainly in Tailoring & Design enabling them to become more financially independent.
The women we select attend a five-month course at the Namasuba College of Commerce in Kampala. We pay for their training and support them during the course with a small grant for food and transport. On completion of their training the women are able to purchase a sewing machine from us at half the normal retail price.

We monitor the progress of the women during their training and once it has ended we interview them in order to get their feedback on the course and discuss their future plans.
Here are some examples of the women we have been able to help.
