Empowering Women in Uganda

GRASSROOTS PARTNER: Community Hope Development Foundation (CHDF)

Empowering women entrepreneurs creates a lasting impact in the rural Ugandan communities we serve. Community Hope Development Foundation (CHDF) was one of the first organizations to join FCDE’s Small Business Initiative (SBI) and immediately began working with young mothers. Through our partnership with Street Business School, SBI combines comprehensive business training with FCDE coaching, networking and competitive seed funding. One year after participating in Street Business School’s workshop, CHDF staff had trained 41 young mothers in the 6-month entrepreneurship program, 100% had started businesses and CHDF had won a small grant from FCDE to expand its work supporting women’s economic empowerment.
