Uganda Women Entrepreneurs Association Limited (UWEAL) was established in 1987. Currently reaches out to 2.5 million women in business in Uganda. It works in 3 core program areas: strengthening women owned enterprises, promoting networking and marketing linkages for business women, advocating for policies that create an enabling environment for women to compete favorably in business.
UWEAL has spearheaded the transformation of the landscape that gives women in business a voice to show case that women are as capable to start and run a business as much as men. The association is currently firmly placed in the private sector to assist and provide the necessary support and guidance to women in business and to advocate for favorable policies through which women entrepreneurs can flourish.
UWEAL has invested heavily in developing and strengthening the entrepreneurial capabilities of women in Uganda and providing a platform to create strategic local, regional and international business linkages, access business information, markets, resources and expertise in a bid to help them build competitive businesses.
The UWEAL Women Incubator Centre supports women and girl entrepreneurs through the provision of Business Development Services, mentoring, business support, facilities and enabling environments that meet the specific needs of women and girl entrepreneurs in Uganda.
The Women Incubation Centre is sub-divided into four sub-sections of; Agribusiness value addition Hub; SCT Hub ; ICT Hub, and; DC Hub. The goal of the project is to promote the development of competitive, profitable and sustainable businesses in agriculture and ICT among women and girl entrepreneurs. This will create employment especially for the youth and alleviate poverty among economically marginalized women in Uganda. Click on the link below to learn more and get details on how to join.
