There is a detrimental unemployment rate in Uganda, in which 18-30 year-olds make up 64% of the unemployed. Musana Empowerment Center tackles this issue by tapping into people’s creativity and potential. As one of the largest training centers in Iganga, we equip Ugandans with business and practical skills through training and employing women in craftsmanship, tailoring, knitting, embroidery, and tie-dye. The full-time and part-time employees have contracts with local schools, businesses, and organizations making uniforms, bags, baskets, among other items.
These women continue to perfect their handiwork by crafting merchandise that is sold in the tourist craft market in Uganda and abroad. Every item sold supports Musana, and provides an income for employees, enabling them to take care of themselves and their families. YOU are dignifying, and giving hope to these women……..and they are very grateful for your support.
