Thank you for your input and for taking time to share your views. Indeed the involvement of men is very critical in addressing the challenge of GBV. As AWAN, we are already involved in tackling the challenge through advocacy and policy engagements. Our determination is to empower women, build their resilience to maneuver through the existing challenges and be able to interrogate the status quo. To mitigate challenges of family conflicts resulting from such enterprises, we shall encourage that such green enterprises be constituted as family businesses but with women as focal persons.
Hullo Alice, Thank you for your observations and comments. I am grateful for your advice especially regarding quantifying the number of beneficiaries and how they will be selected. It is very pertinent and we shall address it immediately. As for your question, we really believe every business requires a financial model to determine how it will generate money and requires in addition to a marketing strategy. We shall have have tools in English translated in major local languages in Uganda and the tools will be as simplified as possible. The resource center will be able to reach both educated and uneducated women. Our outreach program will go along way to reach women in rural areas. We would like to inspire as many women as possible to overcome institutional and cultural barriers that have limited their entrepreneurship.
