About Me

I am an open minded person interested in issues of women. I believe women have the key to a better world. This motivated me to the founding Alias-Women Our Roots Organisation (AWoR) in Uganda). The Vision is to have a community where women and girls lead and influence development change in their lives, households and even communities. Therefore, leadership is a key principle in nurturing women to be able to influence and propel development in their lives, family, households and to a greater extent the communities they live in as an approach to propel women to take action for development.

Iam here to network, contribute and build my capacity to achieve this cause. I am involved in working with young people and women to empower them with knowledge and skills to make appropriate decisions regarding their sexual life; mentoring; financial empowerment, home management; promotion of education for girls and skills development among others.

I look forward to meeting like minded women and organisation , network to enable me achieve my vision.
