With Women Kisoboka is dedicated to benefitting the poorest of the poor, marginalized women of Uganda by providing the learning, tools and opportunities to clear the way for each to access agency, meaning and connection in their lives, enabling them 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 made it possible this month 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 founded and operated by women for women. Through economic and social empowerment, we seek to foster upward economic mobility and self-sufficiency, resiliency and sustainability, of Uganda’s marginalized, poor women, who we know are prime to spark transformative, community systems change, as systems entrepreneurs.
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.
