About Us

We Are In A Mission To
Help The Community

Mujeres Rising for Africa is a non profit organisation with the focus on Women empowerment, safe mobility, safety, creating new job opportunities and a new set of skills to improve their quality of life and economic independence.

Our Causes

SUPPORT OUR PROJECT

Our project is composed of 4 programs designed to complement each other, driving classes, self defense, first aid, and basic economic management.

Women on Wheels

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.

SafeBoda

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.

Safety & Security

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.

Economic Empowerment

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 Funfact

What we are doing
in Uganda?

Creating new programs to empower the women community, creating economic independence and gender equality.

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.
