Gertrude Kizza, Muteesi Clementine – Kito Tukulakulane Women’s Mushroom Project

Date grant awarded: November 7, 2018

Kito Tukulakulane Women’s Mushroom Project is comprised of 13 low-income women engaged in a Mushroom-farming business. Funds help the women set up independent mushroom gardens to support their families and all generated profits are distributed equally among the women.

The group initially started as a savings group under the leadership of Gertrude Kizza. But they later realized that they cannot save what they do not earn, so mushroom farming is another avenue for raising money to sustain themselves and expand on the project while actively maintaining their solidarity.
