About Us

Woman of Purpose is a community based, non-profit organization founded with the aim of facilitating meaningful and sustainable development in the poorest, remotest hard to reach ares in Eastern Uganda. Our focus is on impacting and changing lives and destinies.

We place special focus on working alongside poor women because, equipped with the proper resources, women have the power to help whole families and entire communities escape poverty.

Women are at the heart of our community-based efforts to increase awareness on basic human rights, transform economic power to advance women’s rights and justice, improve basic education, prevent the spread of disease, increase access to clean safe water and sanitation, expand economic opportunity and protect natural resources.

We put special emphasis on widows who graple most under the pressure of discrimination and abuse, who are looking for hope and a future in the circumstances they unfortunately find themselves in.

Examples of specific activities:

We provide -

o       Job skills training

o       Small business training

o       Distribute heifers and goats

o       Books, school and teaching supplies

o       Community sensitization on human rights, widow's rights, domestic violence and       ge     gender equality

o       Housing for widows and poor single mothers

o       mosquito nets, beddings, school uniforms etc.
