Our common goal is to sustainably improve the education of girls and young women. In Uganda, girls often stay in school for only one to two years. They do not have a career perspective. Mostly only the dependence on the husband remains. In order to enable women to participate in working life, they learn how to sew clothes and basket weaving in small groups. The project is committed against the marriages of women in childhood and adolescence!
