Indicator:
WIEGO, in collaboration with Nurturing Uganda (a member of the Ugandan Federation for Alternative Trade), runs a project called Leadership & Business Skills for Women Fair Trade Producers. Thanks to this project, a group of 35 women from Kyebajja Tobona, a rural community in Uganda, have received training on new product development, marketing, account management, and savings and credit groups. According to the project’s website, one woman reported that after the training she was now able to sustain herself better, and that many others reported that they could now pay for their children’s school fees when otherwise they could have not.
