The program is aimed at improving the women's financial and economic status.

Soroti district has received an allocation of 218M under Uganda women entrepreneurship program (UWEP) for financial year 2016-2017 from ministry of gender, labor and social development.

The program is aimed at improving the women's financial and economic status.

Moses Chuna Kapolon the deputy CAO Soroti district says the targeted groups in this program are widows, HIV positive mothers, and school dropouts among other vulnerable groups.

“Women should have interest in the program so that they can better their living conditions” Chuna stated.

Chuna added that women should create groups of 10-15 members in each group in order for them to benefit.

“Government does not want to sideline women a reason as to why this program was brought particularly for them” Chuna said. 

Meanwhile Filbert Ocailap the RDC Soroti district says women should not leave this opportunity pass but instead ensure that they join groups and benefit from it.

 

 

He warned locals against sabotaging government programs saying those who will be identified will face the law.
