Review for womens global empowerment fund, Denver, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Amazing organization with a brilliant local staff in northern Uganda. I had a chance to visit the Gulu office and loved the passion of the local staff. Because programs are managed by locals who know the language and understand the culture it allows projects to be sustainable and effective. Their literacy and micro finance program was the subject of a study by Oxford students that showed effectiveness of having these two programs together and the positive impact it has. Will continue to support for years to come.

Attached is a photo from a women's assembly hour where women voiced their opinions about issues in the community in healthy debates.

Review for womens global empowerment fund, Denver, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

WGEF does an amazing job of implementing a full service micro finance program that actually works. Through a combination of literacy training, menstrual health initiatives, business training and fair lending practices this organization has given women the opportunities and education we take for granted to pull themselves out of the cycle of poverty. The local women of this program are not reliant on aid, but rather are now in a position to help provide much needed supplies to the refugees fleeing South Sudan. I cannot recommend this organization enough!
