We did the work Government took the Credit.

 My grandfather once told me that there were two kinds of people: those who do the work and those who take the credit. He told me to try to be in the first group; there was much less competition. Indira Gandhi.

AGI Uganda did the work, Ministry Of Gender, Labour and Social development took the credit. They stole a picture from our blog and before we knew it it was in their success magazine. I hear 50 years of equipping girls with skills. We are proud to be the ones with an  eye that sees the need of the people and then give the service even with the limited resources.

In the picture below is our very own Aisha and Barbra the trainer.

About African Girl Initiative Uganda

Bwaise is a slum area and one of the biggest in Uganda's capital Kampala. It is one of the poorest areas in Kampala, with high rates of HIV and AIDS, very poor sanitation, large number of commercial sex workers, the largest number eats one meal a day. Many girls living in these slums are exposed to a lot of violence and many dropout of school. It's against this background that African Girl Initiative Uganda is carrying out a project that will avail girls in Bwaise skills and also enhance their knowledge on reproductive health and their rights. African Girl Initiative Uganda is affiliated to Man Up, a global youth campaign to stop violence against women. . View all posts by African Girl Initiative Uganda
