Jewish Uganda Women Initiatives (JUWI) works to support different activities, programs and projects in Jewish communities of Uganda.
More than 80% of the over 8,000 Abayudaya in Uganda are women and youth (below 35 years), the majority lacking a functional job or income earning opportunities. JUWI aims at supporting life skills training and community initiatives that will help achieve a more empowered Jewish community deeply committed to their Jewish culture and their study of the Torah.
We also work with inter-faith organisations to promote women in leadership, environmental protection, Women at workplace, Inter-faith action, social action and Education.
We envision a world in which all girls and young women, regardless of race, religion, income level or social status, are nurtured and empowered to reach their fullest potential.
Our mission is to strengthen the leadership, power, and voices of girls from marginalized and underserved communities.
