Empowering Women and Young Girls to Overcome Injustice and Poverty
Location: Namasura, Uganda
A small community of 50 women members Hope for the Future is the epitome of a vibrant civil society organization initiated by 10 women in the community of Namusara, Uganda. Integrating all five of Rockflower’s keys, Hope for the Future initiates programs and projects using local solutions and a holistic approach. Through the support of vocational training for the unskilled, unemployed and vulnerable women in this district, this project will provide opportunities for those earning less than a dollar a day to increase earning potential to at least $3 per day. Through the provision of sewing and knitting machines and facilities and trainers there is real opportunity for this small but catalytic investment to improve employment opportunities for young girls from 3% to 8% by 2017.
