Income generating Activities
In many countries, women’s awareness and participation in the different aspects of life is nearly three times less than that of men (2006 research on ICT Africa) as they are referred to as the “weaker sex” among the vulnerable groups.
Women face quite a number of challenges in their daily life which involves domestic violence where some are even battered to death and no action is taken, many are raped, cultural practices like female genital mutilation which results into adverse effects, marital rape, no participation in decision making in homes among others.
Women agitation groups and women activists have risen up to avert the current status of women in the issues that affect their lives. For instance, Women of Uganda Network (WOUGNET) which primarily is to impact ICT skills in women through workshops, trainings and setting up ICT laboratories for women in return this has helped them search for market for their products, Ntulume Village women’s development association (NVIWODA) which trains a wide scale of skills like agriculture, craft, soap making, FIDA which strengthens the rights of a woman.
Women activists like Hope Turyasingura, Miria Matembe have demonstrated to restore the rights of a woman and encouragement to participate in politics. A number of projects are set up to avert the current status on women.
Support the project and contribute to the efforts towards building income generating activities.
