Egg Module Partner Featured in Ugandan Press

Dorthy Tuma, the founder of Women's Center For Job Creation (an Egg Module partner) was featured in the Daily Monitor. Here are a few quotes from the article Her passion is to empower women financially:

"“The nice thing about doing projects in Uganda is that it doesn’t take a lot to transform someone’s life,” she said.

Ms Tuma hopes, 10 years from now, the business model that her centre has developed will be used all-over the country and even beyond the borders of Uganda.

“What we are trying to do now is figure out what kind of models work with rural development in rural communities and how we can increase economic empowerment amongst women and improve their standard of living,” she said."
