  • Organisation

    Genogen Women in Development Organisation (GWIDO) is a community-based organisation (CBO) working with women in Nebbi District. Championed by Roseline Nyakwo, who noticed that more and more women and girls approached her for training and that many who had passed through her training had been successful.

    GWIDO runs an apprenticeship programme for 4 months through which women and girls are trained in tailoring, knitting, and designing of garments. The organisation targets to enroll more women every year and has expanded the curriculum to include life skills and basic entrepreneurship training.

    Initially, the Organisation started as a merry-go-round where members would contribute funds in a rotation to a person. This grew to a more formalised savings scheme where the group would contribute funds on a weekly basis and share out at the end of the savings cycle, with members acquiring loans during the savings cycle.
