BREAKING THE SILENCE
THROUGH COLLECTIVE STRENGTH
WHO WE HELP
WAW supports women survivors of conflict in Northern Uganda to recover by providing business skills enhancement and vocational training. This allows female survivors to start and run small businesses, increase earnings, support their families and engage actively in civic processes that will, in the long run, address structural violence problems.
In other words, creating livelihood opportunities for severely disadvantaged women, such as these survivors of post conflict northern Uganda, can powerfully transform the economic, social and political lives of not just these women but also the generations that will come after them.
Survivors in Action
There are over 3,000 female survivors of LRA conflict between 25 and 45 years old in Northern Uganda; 95% are single mothers.
Their children, born in captivity, now range from 12-25 years old; the women also have other children born after the conflict.
WAW leadership intends to establish the Center for Women and Girls empowerment.
WAW leadership has a unique position, having both survived abduction and gained a place in the society that allows them to target these survivors for aide.
In order to serve the survivors of the LRA and other under privileged women in Northern Uganda, WAW is asking for donations in order to gain the following assets (All in USD):
Centere (Building)- $200, 000
Operating Costs/Year- $25,000 (four years)
Livelihood Support Costs Programming- $500/woman (120 women over four years)
