Kyangwali Women's Economic Assistance
We provide economic assistance, such as microcredit loans, to impoverished women in developing countries. The intent of this assistance is to help the community escape extreme poverty. Our efforts have been focused on the women refugees living in the Kyangwali Refugee Settlement in Uganda.
Although our primary focus is microcredit, aid has also included funding for food, schooling, supplies, malaria nets, medicine, communication tools, and two cooperative grain mills. Recently we started a Free Little Library at a primary school in the settlement. Currently we are doing two pilot adult education classes, if this program is successful we hope to expand the project to several locations.
