Who We Are
Our organization is a non profit organization, we empower women who didn't get a chance to go to school, single and young mothers. There's really so much struggling among women who didn't go to school or dropped out. They face a lot of challenges and poverty is one. She Unit Uganda reaches out to those people and trains them with skills in hairdressing, make-up, nails and also making shampoo, conditioner and liquid soap.
These trainings are free of charge.
Our target is to give to those who couldn't afford education and living in poverty, we believe that by doing so, we are lifting the women. Some of which have been able to get jobs where they're now earning a living and their lives have changed.
I came to realize that everyone can, given a chance.
