Sawa World Impact: 210 Teen Girls in Uganda Learn New Skills
Recently, Stromme Foundation and Sawa World partnered to host training workshops teaching self-empowering practical skills to 210 marginalized teen girls who attended! These girls, many of whom were mothers as young as 14, learned simple skills including making cakes, chalk, eco-fuel briquettes and liquid soap. They paid close attention and asked many questions to make sure they understood each step.
What a meaningful day for the attendees! With these skills, they are now ready to make a living and improve their livelihoods by replicating these simple, low-cost solutions.
