Equipping women with business knowledge, skills and attitude. Nearly 100 women have benefited They start up businesses with little capital ,skills and knowledge but can’t survive for long. Most of the women in rural and semi-urban areas in Uganda are either widows or single mothers.

Wu-Health.

Many communities in Uganda, talking about menstruation is a TABOO! For this reason, many girls go through their menstruation secretly! They will never communicate when they need sanitary towels and therefore resort to using newspapers, paper, toilet rolls, leaves, or even sand as substitutes to sanitary towels.

In schools, almost every girl will miss school at least 6 days a month because they had to deal with their period issues. They cannot attend school during their periods because they are afraid their backside will get stained in class and they may feel humiliated by their classmates.

For this reason, lwaki ye has come up with alternatives to help curb this problem through training girls and women to make their own reusable and ecofriendly sanitary towels that they could use for two days.

On the other hand, we will teach students how to do hair dressing, decoration and hand crafting, so they can start their own business and improve the overall community economics.

Unemployment rate in Uganda is above 60%, and the need of entrepreneurs is arising. This program is part of a project that will benefit 10.000 people by 2023. We expect that around 500 of them build their own successful businesses.
