Nearly 100% WWK Women Advance Toward Financial Inclusion
In Kayunga Village, Jinja, a transformative journey unfolds, led by the Abakyala Kisoboka Women’s Group (AKWG) and supported by With Women Kisoboka (WWK). Recently, amid jubilation and dance, 86 remarkable women celebrated a pivotal moment in their lives as they graduated. The event not only symbolized their hard work but also the collective efforts of the community coming together for positive change.
Graduating from WWK signifies progress toward financial inclusion. These women remain actively engaged, some mentoring in WWK’s Graduation and Mentorship program, while others continue to benefit from WWK programming and expand their businesses.
At the graduation on December 3, the Local Chair of Jinja District expressed heartfelt gratitude, recognizing the impactful changes: empowered women leading thriving businesses, families receiving support and a notable reduction in domestic violence. The joy within the community is palpable.
Just as 100% of AKWG women in Jinja graduated, all other local partner communities—in the districts of Kampala, Nakaseke and Kiboga—also graduated nearly 100% of their members at year-end, and look forward to doubling the number of marginalized women WWK’s programming will impact with economic and social opportunity to more than 1,000 during Q1 of 2024!
