FPA’s Vocational Initiatives – Empowering Women as Agents of Change!
For many women in Uganda, especially those solely responsible for raising and protecting their children, exploitation is a common threat. Often, women are forced to support their families through hard labor, earning less than a dollar a day. Despite their desire to the contrary, many mothers depend on their children working alongside them to supplement the family’s meager income. Despite dreams of a better life for their children, this cycle of poverty repeats itself, as these women have little education and few marketable skills to change the course of their futures.
