With Women Kisoboka (WWK)—meaning with women it is possible—is dedicated to empowering the marginalized women of Uganda who live at the lowest income level with agency, meaning and connection in their lives to positively transform themselves, their family and their community.
We need your help. WWK's funding assures that our local partner communities will survive the COVID pandemic and the women we serve will continue to have the support to lift themselves from the dire circumstances of extreme poverty.Why WEE?
With Women Kisoboka (WWK) is a women-led and operated indigenous NGO in Uganda and an affiliate US-based nonprofit focused on community systems change through women's empowerment. We promote access to financial inclusion through interest-free small capital, ongoing skill development, and continued learning through functional adult literacy and numeracy education (FAL), and the entrepreneurship training of Street Business School for the most vulnerable women in Uganda who live at the lowest income level in the country's urban settlements and remote rural villages.
We work in the dynamic nexus of women’s empowerment (SGD5), and decent work and economic growth (SDG8), with many of the other sustainable development goals, that in the aggregate hold great promise as a global model for social and economic transformation.
Our Graduation Policy
We work with a graduation policy that starts with developing an entrepreneurial mindset, moves to economic empowerment, and ultimately to personal and community transformation. This policy is peer-driven, and implemented with a context specific understanding by the program leads of each local partner.
