Women of Kireka

The Northern Uganda Women and Children Initiatives (NUWECHI) started the Women of Kireka project in September 2008. They are on their way to achieving the goal of raising enough money to help a group of 15 women start a tailoring business, having already raised about $2000. By purchasing the necessary equipment and providing proper training, the project will enable these women to leave their difficult jobs in the quarries, earn more money for their families, and start a better life. Once their business is up and running, these women will be able to sustain it and the project will be self sufficient.
