2023—Year of Transformation
2022—Year of Digitization
2020 and 2021 Years of Partnership Building
We continued to build local partners and our network of technical partnerships, while also building the NGO capacity with a full time accountant and consultants in legal and organizational support.
2020 We listened carefully to our members and developed three essential programs:
1. We provide wider access to useful financial services through interest-free loans, village savings and loans (VSLA), and ultimately connections to financial service providers who open the door to formal financial inclusion.
2. Our literacy education, entrepreneurial business training, and continuous professional development has encouraged lifelong learning.
3. We foster community-centered skill development that addresses many of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDG*). This has made it possible for WWK members to pursue their entrepreneurial vision of becoming smallholder farmers, (SDG2, SDG5, SDG8), clean energy entrepreneurs (SDG7), improving access to clean water access and better sanitation (SDG6), advancing health and well-being (SDG 3) and tackling the effects of climate change (SDG13). *The Sustainable Development Goals (SDG)mentioned above are among the 17 global goals set by the United Nations to achieve “a better and more sustainable future for all” by the year 2030.
2017-2019 Formative Years
WWK grew from a program of another nonprofit to achieve its NGO status as an indigenous non-governmental organization (NGO) Bureau. Two local CBO partners—Kisoboka Nano Initiative of Kampala District, Bliss Feme of Kasese District, and ACCESS of Nakaseke—came on board during this time when WWK also began implementing annual monitoring and evaluation.
