ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION
Women's Global Empowerment Fund provides women in post-conflict Uganda with microloans and a broad range of leadership development and education programs. This helps the women to gain economic stability and independence while rebuilding their lives and communities. WGEF creates opportunities while addressing inequality, strengthening families and building communities.
WHAT WE'VE ACCOMPLISHED TOGETHER
Our partnership has provided microloans and business training for more than 1,500 women; enabled more than 600 women to participate in literacy programs; helped ensure women have "a seat at the policy table"; launched and fully funded the Healthy Periods Initiative; and opened Gulu Women's Resource Centre, the only resource of its kind in the entire region.
