Kisoboka means “it is possible”.
With Women Kisoboka (WWK) works to lift up the women of Uganda who live at the lowest income level by providing them with the resources to build agency, meaning, and connection in their lives so that they can positively transform themselves, their family and their community.
In recognition of women all over the world who suffer from oppression, inequity, marginalization, and vulnerability, we share an uplifting story of Nakayiza Aminah, WWK Program Director.
The two very specific ways WWK differs from other organizations are:
1) We don’t tell the women we work with what they need…they tell us,
2) We seek ultimately not to be needed… but to define ways for all marginalized women to transform themselves and in doing so their communities.
How do we do this? The WWK NGO partners with local communities to help women understand their innate potential and thrive as entrepreneurs. 100% of your donation goes towards programs that show vulnerable women, living in the urban settlements and remote rural villages of Uganda, how their initiative and resourcefulness can be used to lift themselves from the dire circumstances of extreme poverty into a life of stability and financial independence. For 2023, the women are ready to work as leaders to sustain their community's access to safe water because they know this would be transformative: productivity will be on the rise, incomes will increase, girls will focus on school and learning, and the health and well-being of thousands will improve as water-borne illnesses will be eliminated, and basic health will improve.

Our approach, which is driven by the women we serve as they are experts in their own lives, starts with developing an entrepreneurial mindset, moves to increased economic empowerment, and leads to personal and community transformation. Our intended impact is for Uganda's marginalized women to become leaders and change agents in their community.
