Womens Global Empowerment Fund
In 2007 I founded Women's Global Empowerment Fund offering microfinance and educational programming to women in northern Uganda. My movitivation is the belief that, given and opportunity, women can rise above poverty with dignity. We are based in Denver, Colorado, and have an office in Gulu, northern Uganda. I am a single mom, with two fabulous daughters, who make me laugh and are my best friends.
Women's Global is my life's work and it is a privilege to work with such resilliant, gracious women, who desire an opportunity to create a brighter, more secure future for themselves and their families.
