We believe in women empowerment, breaking barriers providing with our programs to give the women in East Africa the opportunity to be economically independent, and teach them to believe in their abilities. Gender equality is the essence of human growth and sustainability.
Our project is composed of 4 programs designed to complement each other, driving classes, self defense, first aid, and basic economic management.
WOW is our main motorcycle driving program, which is being executed in Kampala and Jinja districts as our first pilot program.
Together with local collaborators, we are aiming for the increase of women drivers along with their participation in the biggest mobility industry in the country.
More opportunities, more independence, more equality and participation in the economic growth of the country.
With road accidents set to match HIV/AIDS as the highest cause of death in low/middle income countries by 2030, SafeBoda’s aim is to modernise informal transportation.
When drivers join the SafeBoda community they see significant increase in their income providing impact to themselves, their family and the wider community.
Today, together with Mujeres Rising for Africa, a program has been created to increase the number of female drivers, improving safety and giving the women community the opportunity they deserve.
Women are victims of different forms of violence on a daily basis.
For this reason, many women are interested in learning how to protect themselves against violent situations, but may not know how.
Martial arts can enable women to develop the mental and physical skills to defend themselves against physical abuse or attacks.
Investing in the economic empowerment of women and girls includes women’s ability to participate equally in existing markets, their access to and control over productive resources, access to decent work, control over their own time, lives and bodies and increased voice in meaningful economic decision making at all. Empowering women creates more resilient communities because when women are supported, health among families increases, as does the income and the amount of children that attend school.
Our Mission is to equip women with knowledge, education and new skills, empowering them to become independent entrepreneurs with assertiveness and security, creating a safe supporting community and the opportunity to improve their quality of life.
We are driven by the vision of a world where all the women can live with dignity and equality, generating value to a better safer society. With women in positions of leadership in business and in the community, the urban settlements and rural villages of Uganda will thrive with more possibility and true gender equality as well as economic growth.
If you are thinking, how can I help? In our case we need:
Professionals in different fields such as community manager, communication, marketing, fundraising, events coordination, education & business classes, coaching, depending on our programs.
And of course, we are open to hear from you for any other type of useful collaboration.
