About Me:'m a ugandan student and a Mom of 3 children. I'm a volunteer Project Coordinator to the organization. Prior to this, I was the Assistant Project Coordinator of Tweyambe Women’s Group. I have a certificate in Project Planning and Management from Makerere University, and currently I'm pursuing a secondary education degree at Makerere University. My responsibilities include new project development, recruiting project partners and donors from Uganda and internationally. I'm on the teams responsible for developing the Poultry Microfinance Project and the pilot Solar Lighting Microfinance Project.

Uganda SPACE is a community based non-profit organisation empowering impoverished women, youth, and children through education, evangelical/ pastoral work and social business enterprises like poultry and solar lantern microfinance projects , sustainable tour services, Renewable energy projects, Water and sanitation programs.

I'm interested in connecting with Volunteers, women activistis, journalists, project partners, donors, tourists and travellers with the mission of impoving the lives of impoverished women, children, youth and rural communities at large.

My Passions:Love for women development, and education of girl child in uganda

My Challenges:low numbers of educated women, funds to mobilise women

My Vision for the Future:To have a poverty free women generation in uganda

My Areas of Expertise:Education and women emanicipation

We are so thrilled that you have joined our online community. SPACE is doing some great work and we would love for you to share some of your experiences and success stories. For those who are unfamiliar with SPACE, it is the Uganda Science Publishers and Community Elevation Organisation, a non-government organisation started in 2007 that takes a leading role in local communities through publishing science and initiatives to sustainably improve the livelihood of less privileged urban, rural and grass root community.

Here on PulseWire, you will find women who have dared to speak out and are making connections crossing oceans, continents, and cultural barriers to change the way we live. You are now a member of this vibrant community and I look forward to reading more about your passions, ideas, concerns and dreams.

Take a moment to browse through our group directory ( where you may find a group with similar interests to your own. Or, you may consider starting your own group where you can build a powerful network bringing together PulseWire members with similar visions who want to share ideas or actions. You also might be interested in connecting with member mamaAfrica, who has established many programs to help women in rural Kenya. She is moving mountains on her own and is such an inspiration.

Thank you for your message and for referring me to Kasinja. I will email him today. I would love it if you would my newly formed group Solar for Empowerment. Would love to bring many people together to talk about needs for solar energy and how best to deliver.

Looking forward to getting acquainted on Pulsewire.

Best, Genice Jacobs

Dear Nalubega,

I've been in touch with one of my World Pulse friends - Dr. Araceli - who informs me that you two are meeting in Kampala to work on rural women's reproductive health together. What a fantastic story and a wonderful connection made through World Pulse!

I would like to write a brief story for World Pulse about this meeting and about your village work together. Are you available by email to discuss? If so, please send an email address where I can reach you. I have also been in touch with Araceli and hope to interview both of you!

It's very exciting. I hope to hear from you soon.

Best wishes, Rachel
