The International Women’s Coffee Alliance (IWCA) Uganda Chapter is reimagining the future – one where families and communities thrive because women are empowered. This challenging work requires dedicated staff with a track record for executing with excellence. The project will collect resources to sustain the three Chapter Secretariat staff.
The reach, value, potential impact, and demand for the IWCA Uganda’s services has outgrown the volunteer-driven model it was founded upon. Stabilizing the existing human resources will provide the infrastructure that is essential for the Chapter to achieve is potential as the catalyst for women to gain full economic participation.
The Chapter develops and deliver data-driven solutions in the form of programs, research, and impact assessments to accomplish advocacy, capacity building, and leadership development; business and market access trainings; and stakeholder engagement. This project will raise the funds to make it possible for this work to continue.
With the Secretariat able to reliably deliver efficient and effective services, the number of women gainfully participating in the value chain will increase. This may include advocacy for improved national policies; improved market access and trainings; and more women will become business owners. As a result, the future of over 10000 women and their Families in the coffee value chain under the IWCA Uganda Chapter network will be bright.
