About Wogem Uganda

WoGEM Uganda is a Community Based Organization (CBO) dedicated in influencing and promoting women and girl’s participation in greener economy to promote social and economic development.

This idea  was brought about   by a group of women who sat down and realized the  challenges that are faced by women, girls such as gender in equality, fears in women that can lead to lack of confidence   in public,  lack of respect  for caregivers, lack of women in positions of power, early pregnancy ,  high levels of domestic violence , sexual abuses  and denial of human rights , lack of access to equal opportunity like for men ,  gender power imbalances, lack of oversight,  lack of awareness about financial assistance, social-cultural barriers, identifying the available resources, exposed to the training programs,  lack of awareness about financial assistance, and knowledge about business administration hence  raising forms of  injustices  being  done  to women  in the country
