Empowering Ugandan Women

BOH started its mission of empowerment in 2011 and works tirelessly with our Ugandan friends and partners to end poverty in rural Uganda.

Women in rural Uganda suffer from tradition of men taking multiple wives. When these men cannot financially support the resulting families, they abandon these women, leaving them to care for an average of six children.

To us, sustainable empowerment means that these women can use their own intellect, resources, and community to make the necessary, positive changes to fully care for their families.

We don’t believe in handouts or quick fixes. We do believe that true and lasting change comes from sweet partnership and friendship over time. We ask the women for their expert opinion and together, we problem-solve. These questions and joint problem solving have led to BOH’s three programs.
