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.
With your support, our local partner communities will survive the COVID pandemic and our participants––vulnerable women living in the urban settlements and remote rural villages of Uganda––with their initiative and resourcefulness will continue 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 economic 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. 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 increased 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. We are continuing to grow organically and strategically, as word spreads quickly among local friends!
