How Investing in a Girl Means Investing in a Community

Rose Bagala took her entrpreneurship skills and built her very own cooperative of crafters. She is an incredible strength and inspiration to women everywhere. 

Rose lives in the Wakiso district, east of the capital city Kampala, Uganda. She dropped out of school at the age of 12 because her parents could not afford to pay. Rose never let go of her fervent desire for an education. She had her sister teach her crafting and worked hard to perfect her skills.    

    

15 years later she runs her own cooperative of crafters who combine and sell their handcrafted products. She creates exquisite handmade items such as the lovely Businje Bowl. 

She stands incredibly proud that she can afford to send her two children to school and empower other women in her community. However, there are still many women to empower and stories to change. Rose represents the millions of young girls withdrawn from school too early by an inability to pay.

 

According to the 2014 Millennium Development Goals Report, some 33 million children in sub-Saharan Africa were out of school in 2012. Along with our initiative, NGSP, we join a global effort to empower women by giving them the educational and professional opportunities they deserve.

   

Today. this entrepreneurial woman epitomizes the many successful graduates of our initiative’s program. With the education and support from Generate for Generations she has become a financial planner setting long-term goals on the way to owning a shop. She is a beautiful example of what an incredible difference your Circle of Hands Uganda purchases can make. Rose’s ultimate goal in life is to give her children an education and build her business. Thanks to the purchases and support of our customers, she is well on her way to achieving that.
