Date grant awarded: February 18, 2019

Empowering Women for Greater Heights is a project run by a group of ten female volunteers in Rukararwe village, Bushenyi District, Uganda. The project’s main goal is to promote women participation and inclusiveness in governance, social, political, and economic spheres of life.

The project is needed to address the gender inequality, cultural and traditional prejudices, women lawlessness, and apathy in governance and development processes. It will offer women a platform to build self esteem and capacity in various activities, including leadership and management and issues of gender, power, and feminism. The funds will support bicycle caravans and publicity of the activities women will engage in to show their capabilities to the whole world.
