Program 1

Our current project works with two women's groups in the Mpigi District of Uganda. One group was specifically set up for women in Kononi to earn money to send their daughters to school. This group, and another, make baskets to earn money. Educate the Girls has sold their baskets in the U.S., and all funds are used for helping girls in those areas to attend primary and secondary school.
