Social Entrepreneurship

Economic hardships result in severe economic imbalance between genders, financial exclusion, increased gender inequality, and high levels of exploitation. To create economic independence among girls and women, we empower them to fight pressing social problems with market-oriented approaches, providing access to top-level training and mentoring through a human-focused context and social entrepreneurship. In order to create lasting economic empowerment for girls and women, a design-driven entrepreneurship curriculum is applied to every single female-led enterprise.

Reproductive and Maternal Health

Uganda is one of the countries performing poorly in international efforts to reduce maternal and infant mortality. On an average day in Uganda, a total of 16 mothers die due to preventable causes. Our solution to this a community-driven approach designed as a health fellowship program that recruits outstanding midwifery graduates to serve in underserved and susceptible to high maternal and child mortality communities. Our Safe Mum fellows work hand in hand with the communities, village health teams, local health centers and referral hospitals in the communities they are placed to improve the overall communities’ maternal health situation. Additionally, fellows provide home antenatal & postnatal services, nutrition and breastfeeding awareness, and referrals for complicated cases. Further, through our project re-Pad, we are addressing the challenges surrounding menstrual health and other reproductive health-related issues in communities.

Young Girl Changemaker

Uganda has the youngest population of any country in the world. Within this context, young women and girls are the most overlooked members of this society. Our solution is the young girl changemaker, a program that creates opportunities for young girls to develop their potential in leadership in their communities, rewrite their personal tragic stories and those of their communities through skills development, identification of community needs, and building tangible solutions to address these needs. Beyond, this the program also revolves around mentorship for the young girls as they are connected to individual mentors to support them in their achieve their dreams and have successful lives.


Our work is primarily with women and girls within three distinct communities; Fishing Communities, Refugee Communities, and Peri-urban communities. The conditions of living within these communities in one way or the other counteract to increase women and girls’ vulnerability. Currently, our active projects are in the districts of; Wakiso, Serere.
