Doreen, Nantambi, Cissy, Annet – Empowering Single Vulnerable Mothers

Date grant awarded: February 14, 2019

Amanya Doreen started her project, Empowering Single Vulnerable Mothers, in Masindi District, Uganda to empower these women with employment and thus improve their economic status and level of independence. Inspired by these mother’s desire and commitment to work, however falling short in the job marker, Doreen began growing chai seeds as a way to invite these women into employment.

The grant from The Pollination Project will help in hiring tractors to clear the land, purchase more seeds, and organic manure, along with other necessary equipment.
