BWC is a genuine grassroots organisation, which has grown from 10 to over 50 women since it's establishment in 1988. We are a community-based organisation in Western Uganda, working to improve the socio-economic welfare of women in the sub county of Kyarumba.
We are an organisation of underprivileged, mainly poor but hardworking women who identified the need to work together to improve our families' ways of life and community services, as well as increase household incomes in our village.
We are situated in Western Uganda, Kasese district, Kyarumba Subcounty. We are registered with DENIVA (Development Network of Indigenous Voluntary Associations), and Kasese District NGO Network ( KADNET).
We have an office at Kyarumba Trading Centre, with five local volunteers. We have had a number of projects in the last several years, including training women in tailoring, in vanilla production and practical financial issues.
In consultation with the community in Kyarumba, and with support from over 30 neighbours at Nabuur.com, we have developed the programme "Promoting Girls' Education" (PROGIE) to improve girls' access to education, retention, and the completion of school. In order to implement this programme we have initially developed Kyarumba Girls Education Fund to help provide financial resources.
