PPDR Uganda pays a particular attention to women and focuses on creating awareness about women rights, reproductive rights and family planning, economic stability, and women in leadership.
Under this department, so far we have a savings group called (Dufatanye savings group).
In the saving groups (30 members per group), members save little savings in their groups and this savings money is given to some members as startup capital to establish small income generating businesses. The group has successfully completed cycles of twelve-months.
Teenage mothers program
We intend to train teenage mothers in survival skills like making crafts, candles, and soap. PPDR sells for them in bigger shops and looks for the market. We encourage and support mothers to engage in small income generating businesses that can improve on their families’ income.
