We envision a world where rural marginalized women are economically empowered and able to live self-sustainably in order to stand up for their own rights.
The volunteer would help us structure the foundation of the program, take part in the adult education scheme program, measure our impact, and fund-raise.
We're currently staying in the premises of our mentoring organization. Here we have African huts built out of plastic bottles.
Our main dishes consist of rice; beans; and posho, Uganda Mill from corn.
The volunteer will be able to adjust to the Ugandan village setting life and at a certain point help in paying some fees by themselves.
This is the first activity the volunteer takes part in so that they can have a feel of what they would like to take part into during their time of stay.
We need learning materials for the adult education scheme for rural women, shoes for girls attending school, and a laptop for the Foundation.

We as the Gejja Women Foundation are questioning the way the world treats women and teens. Women and girls form the most vulnerable and underserved communities in the world. But, when they are empowered, educated, and protected, they become agents of change. We hope to ignite this change through educational support, permaculture practicing, encouraging women startups, and producing of reusable sanitary products. This foundation was established as a result of life stories and experiences, and the livelihood of women is our key focus.
