News & Notes
Knowledge is power! This is why our workshops and trainings exist; to equip our Women in Business with the tools to run sustainable businesses and achieve economic empowerment. These testimonials from our Women in Business are evidence that we are slowly achieving our goals.
One of the things we are very passionate about at Women’s Center for Job Creation is training. We believe that a sure path to economic empowerment for our Women in business is through knowledge. We run workshops and follow-up coaching sessions to equip the women with basic business and financial management skills that help them grow and sustain their businesses. Here are a few of their testimonials.
Regina Mulondo is one of our pioneer #WomenInBusiness. She is also one of our oldest participants. When interviewing her in line with Women’s Day and what it signifies for her, we found her take on women’s positions and her very obvious vocal feminism particularly refreshing. She is a reminder that the struggle for equality is not one that has just recently been embarked on here in Uganda. She is evidence of the resilience of our mothers and grandmothers and hope for us and our daughters. Here is a little of her take on Women’s Day.
As we #PressForProgress and evaluate ways in which we are helping to achieve women’s economic empowerment. We wanted to hear about Women’s Day from some of our #WomenInBusiness. What does the day mean to them? What does being a woman mean? This is Part 2 of our conversation.
International Women’s Day and more broadly, International Women’s Month are significant for Women’s Center for Job Creation (WCFJC) for obvious reasons. We are about women to our very core and Women’s Month is our opportunity to celebrate that; to look at the ways in which our struggle for women’s economic empowerment is actually paying off and find ways to even better establish it.
