Our Mission & Vision

Mission: To empower women and girls with the knowledge and skills to become leaders in their own communities.
Vision: Our vision is for women and girls to be in positions of leadership acting as role models for future generations whilst promoting equitable development in Uganda
What is the problem?
In Uganda due to cultural norms, particularly in a rural setting, some parents feel that it is a waste of time and money to educate girls.
