  • Title: Family Economic Empowerment
    Descriptive info: Family Economic Empowerment.. Voluntary Action for Development (VAD) has been receiving support from Friends of Uganda eV.. Germany.. www.. freundeugandas.. de.. coordinated by Mrs.. Ilse Schummer since her initiation in 1996, where Friends of Uganda funds VAD's activities on the project of Family Economic Empowerment which has two major components namely; the Economic Empowerment of the poor less privileged women and the improvement of the learning Environment of the Less privileged children.. The Economic Empowerment of the less privileged women aims at building and strengthening the capacity of these women through training and provision of group revolving loans that create capital for such women to enable them engage in gainful income generating micro projects in order to become economically stable.. Why women?.. Women reinvest 90% of their income in their families and communities, compared with men who invest only 30% to 40% (World Bank).. Women are also more likely to use their profits to help the poor and are more likely to hire other women to work to work for them; they are also more likely to repay their loans than men.. As such, VAD emphases this model of Women-led Community Development work that leverages Women's Economic Empowerment for the benefit of entire families and communities.. The program has provided critical skills training,  ...   by their women in the family welfare.. Successful women from these group revolving loans are then given opportunity to obtain soft individual loans with low interest from VAD Micro Finance (VAD-MFI) to further enlarge their projects.. VAD-MFI is also another project funded by Friends of Uganda eV.. Germany.. The second major component of the Family Economic Empowerment project is the improvement of the Education standards of the less privileged children through improvement of their learning environment.. Every year Friends of Uganda eV Germany in partnership with VAD supports over 60 Primary Schools both in Wakiso and Mpigi Districts to improve on their infrastructure where construction materials like cement, Iron sheets, Iron bars are provided to support such schools face lift the classrooms.. furniture (Desks) for the children and teachers are also provided.. There are frequent influxes of children joining the supported schools because of the improved learning environment where new classrooms are also constructed from this support.. Our slogan, "a step by step to development" has seen fundamental improvement in the livelihood of many families and children both in Wakiso and Mpigi Districts.. This project has turned round the lives of several families in both Wakiso and Mpigi Districts of Uganda and Women are now viewed by their husbands as family welfare partners..
