WOMENS GLOBAL EMPOWERMENT FUND
May 23, 2012

I began volunteering with Women's Global Empowerment Fund (WGEF) earlier this year. I was immediately welcomed into the organization and feel I have been given meaningful tasks and am a part of the team. I was initially drawn to volunteer with WGEF because their mission of achieving women's empowerment through microfinance was in alignment with my interest in feminist and gender studies. I am inspired by WGEF's commitment to making systemic social and economic change for women in Gulu, Uganda. The voices of participants in the organization are always considered when making decisions about programing. Ugandan women advocated for the issues they saw in their community and WGEF was responsive in creating programs to meet those needs. In particular WGEF has a literacy program, an agriculture program and recently began a drama festival where women use theater as a vehicle to express criticism of the patriarchal status quo. It has been a wonderful experience serving on the resource development committee board and I look forward to my continued involvement with Women's Global Empowerment Fund. -Laura
