Felix commented on Economic empowerment of the vulnerable women

Thanks a lot Charlotte for the comments, this an idea that i have tested as you can see from the photo above, although with 30 women only so far but it seems to be yielding fruits within the house holds who have benefited, i conducted a review meeting and i found out that they were able to meet school dues from the sale of the animal/chicken that were given. for instance one has 40 chicken yet she sold 6 for 120,000 Ugandan shillings and she was able to me her own medical bills and schools for her orphans. And I have already gone into group formation where they have already started saving, to avoid killing and eating the animals, we train these women with basic skills and knowledge on entrepreneurship and animal/poultry management to manage and start their small businesses and this is followed with a lot of monitoring to check on the progress of their activities. So Charlotte, this is an idea i would want to scale since its really solving issues of neglects and incapacitation to meet child's need.
