With our project in Kigungu, we work with community leaders to further spread our empowerment program to the vulnerable young women we found in this community. We may not be able to give shelter to all but they can avail of our different educational programs. Some of the lessons being shared with the young women include crafts, business studies, math, health, English, traditional dance, among others.
Womens Shelter Project
With this project Resilient Women’s Organization – Uganda offers shelter to teen mothers and young women in the form of full lodging inclusive of meals. We work with local council leaders in our community to identify those women who truly need a hand. Resilient Women’s Organization – Uganda operates two shelter homes, with our main home sheltering 15 young women & 6 babies under the age of one. Our other shelter home is new & smaller housing 7 women. We always have a bed for a teen mother plus child in need of a place to reboot and find reformation.
This is a new project which got kick-started in late 2017 for agribusiness activities as well as to house our second shelter home. Nakawuka is a bit far off of town life, serene and has rich capable lands for our proposed model of environmentally-friendly organic farming, poultry rearing and a piggery. Our very own girls will offer labour and once all is up & running, this project will sustain our learning packages and some feeding needs.
At Resilient Women’s Organization – Uganda encourages youth to engage in agriculture and support them to learn best farming practices. We encourage and support the youth to start agriculture enterprises for nutritional supplements and income generation such as kitchen gardening, poultry, piggery, goats keeping etc. We have demonstration gardens at the youth centre where youth get practical lessons and after they are given seeds especially, greens to go and plant in their respective homes. We support the vulnerable young people with seeds and livestock such as goats, pigs, chicken among other trades to start and manage their own agriculture ventures.
Additionally Resilient Women’s Organization – Uganda offers Farming projects which aims at improving food nutrition at household level whereby we encourage women and youth to contribute towards their nutritional welfare so that they can improve their health.
