Catholic Relief Services has made an impact in young women’s lives in Uganda by teaching them how to become self-reliant farmers and entrepreneurs.
Providing training in finance and entrepreneurship, the Catholic Relief Service Girls’ Agro-Investment (GAIN) Project helps women succeed through passion fruit farming.
“They taught us, we as girls, we can do work just like men,” says Marunga Mabel, a twenty-year-old mother who, despite not attending secondary school, is a successful businesswoman.
Thanks to this program, many women like Marunga will become aware of their potential and grow their way toward a bright future.
