BBI launches “BiZoHa Women’s Empowerment Center”

Posted: Sun, August 13, 2017 | By: Women



Our new project—the “BiZoHa Women’s Empowerment Center—will be headquartered at our newly-constructed BiZoHa Humanist Center.

The BiZoHa Women’s Empowerment Center will offer lectures on humanism and feminism, and it will provide sewing lessons, via a sewing teacher and three sewing machines that BBI has provided.

Funds were provided by the David Thompson Fund. The amount contributed provided only enough cash for the first four months; after that, we will launch a campaign to raise additional funds. Eventually the center’s goal is to be self-supporting.

BiZoHa Women’s Empowerment Centre is located in Muhokya, near Queen Elizabeth Park in western Uganda.

Eighteen of the twenty-five members are teachers at BiZoHa Orphanage School, and Kahendero School—the others are farmers and business women.
