With Women Kisoboka (WWK)—meaning with women it is possible—is dedicated to empowering the poorest of the poor, marginalized women of Uganda with agency, meaning and connection in their lives to positively transform themselves, their family and their community.
In this new world we live in, the COVID-19 pandemic is a challenge for everyone. WWK's relief fund is making it possible for the nearly 800 women and their families living in the urban slums and remote villages where we work to receive much needed food and soap. We invite your continued support given the uncertainty of this time and the remarkable moxie of the women in our program to be the change.Why WEE?
With Women Kisoboka is a women-led and operated indigenous NGO in Uganda and an affiliate US-based nonprofit focused on women's empowerment and community systems change. When WWK empowers poor, marginalized women with functional adult literacy and numeracy education (FAL), the entrepreneurship training of Street Business School and the learning of specific skills, along with interest free financial assistance, we are making it possible for these remarkable women to access upward economic mobility, resiliency and self-sufficiency.
Using a human-centered, community systems change approach to tackle extreme poverty, we are working 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, moving to economic empowerment, and finally to personal and community transformation. This policy is implemented with a context specific understanding and is implemented by the program leads of each local partner to best be of service to the women in the program.
