Partner Organizations

Partner Organizations

Women’s Global Empowerment Fund partners with organizations on the ground in northern Uganda to provide microcredit services with literacy, leadership development, health initiatives and basic business education into a single service reaching women in poor or rural areas. This integrated and collaborative approach has been proven to alleviate poverty and empower women.

Women’s Global has partnered with a local, registered nonprofit to create a more effective vehicle for our program.  By partnering with Volunteer Action Network, a local NGO, Women’s Global and our programs have been accepted by the community as a viable, trustworthy organization whose agenda is compatible with local interests and cultural concerns. In addition, we have joined the Uganda NGO Forum, which represents all local, grassroots organizations working in Gulu, enabling organizations to work together to accomplish the best possible outcomes for the people we serve.

In addition to our partnerships in Uganda, Women’s Global works with many partner organizations in Denver and around the world. Learn more about these unique and powerful collaborations below!
