The proposed project by LORM is aimed at promotion of women empowerment through gender Mainstreaming. This will be done through promotion of women participation through capacity building and skills trainings to be independent among five selected villages in Kyankwanzi district, Western region, Uganda. LORM is a registered Local Non-Governmental, Non-Political and non-profit making Organization (INDR117122992NB) with a goal of promoting human welfare and reduction of suffering, tackling poverty cases, illiteracy, hygiene and responding to emergencies and disasters of any kind.
The organization goal is to ‘Create access to social and economic opportunities towards empowering Women and Children.’ To achieve this goal, LORM works by mobilizing and recruiting women into self-help groups through which the women engage in various socio-economic activities. As an organization, LORM believes that in order to reach the child, the woman as the custodian of the child has to be accessed first.
