The mission of Women’s Global Empowerment Fund is to reach underserved women in northern Uganda through microfinance loans and education programs, creating opportunities while strengthening families and communities. It seeks to offer women leadership and empowerment abilities required to lead successful, dignified lives.
“Once social change begins it cannot be reversed. You cannot uneducate the person that has learned to read. You cannot humiliate the person who feels pride. You cannot oppress the people who are not afraid anymore.”
- Cesar Chavez
Our objective is to provide women with the framework necessary to create viable opportunities for themselves and their families. Through proven grassroots strategies, marginalized women are given the tools necessary to alleviate poverty and thus facilitate sustainable development, self-determination, leadership opportunities and empowerment.
