U-TOUCH is raising funds to support our Women's Empowerment program in Uganda. U-TOUCH provides training in entrepreneurship and technology as well as self-esteem and team building. All donations will be matched 100%!
Many thanks for all of the offline donations! The campaign total for online and offline donations is $1250!
With training in entrepreneurship, business skills, basic computer skills, mobile technology and self-esteem, graduates like Patricia are empowered to start or improve their own businesses and provide for their families.
Patricia's story: "Through the training I gained entrepreneurship skills, leadership skills among other skills that I use in my day-to-day life experiences.
Thanks to U-TOUCH for giving me a grant of 150,000UGX [$50] that helped me to resume my peanut butter business. This has greatly increased my financial ability. The business generates for me over 50,000UGX everyday and this income helps me to support my family. Unlike other vulnerable women, I am no longer financially dependent and I also employ two other ladies who help me with the processing of the peanut butter.
My success has had an important impact on the community by inspiring other ladies and I believe that as I advance I will also employ many other women."
