our impact - "their future in their hands"
Disadvantaged and vulnerable rural women are faced with poverty, lack of land ownership, illiteracy, lack of employment opportunities, personal voilence and sexual abuse, physical theft and HIV/AIDS infection. They are not equal and they are not heard in their families and their communities but KWDT's work since 1996 has changed all this for those that we have managed to support so far.
Katosi Women Development Trust in Uganda has successfully created social and economic change as women together develop productive livelihoods through self-managed groups and supporting projects.
