Women Empowerment Is Key To Development

ABOUT US

OUR VISION

Enhanced women communities with the capacity to use available resources for socio-economic development.

OUR GOAL

Achieving equal opportunities for women by empowering them participate in and benefit from the socio-economic development.

OUR MISSION

Answerid’s mission is to improve the livelihoods of those women who struggle to sustain; the ones who are unable to get sufficient income and who fail to send their children to school. There are many Ugandan women struggling to sustain and Answerid has been given permission to act throughout the whole country. Currently however Answerid has very limited means in terms of financial support, which makes it difficult to help more women.

OUR MAJOR OBJECTIVES

To build the capacity of women at grass root level to be self reliant through skills and talent development as well as market access.

To increase women and men access to control over reproductive/maternal health and rights

To strengthen community’s access to clean and safe environmental practices.

To strengthen the institutional framework

HISTORY

..Ms.Betty Bwanika founder and Executive Director of Answerid teamed up with six ladies who were very passionate with grass-root women and the rural empowerment. At first there were lots of staggering with bonding the board and also selling of the idea to the women in the community about the importance of forming an Organization.

We started with an attendance of 52 people in 2010 who promised to become members; with those we held our 1st Annual General Meeting in March 2012. An Interim Board was unanimously elected into power. Ms Betty Bwanika was appointed by the Board as the Executive Director, she was known doing tremendous voluntary work to grow the Organisation even before. ANSWERID Worldwide is steered by the spirit of voluntarism by her members.

Its area of operation stretches to all the 7 Sub Counties of Mpigi district; Muduuma, Kammengo, Kituntu, Nkozi, Kiringente, Buwama and Mpigi Town Council but with more concentration in Mawokota North Constituency.

Answerid envisions an “enhanced women community with capacity to use available resources to achieve socio economic development.” with a mission statement of “To build the capacity of women through skills training, information sharing, advocacy and resource mobilization towards development.”

TESTIMONIALS

Hear from our members and partners

My university collaborated with ANSWERID during 2016-7 in the context of a project for strengthening entrepreneurship among rural Ugandan women. ANSWERID proved to be a 100% trustworthy partner with in-depth knowledge about the needs of the grassroots. Its admirable leader, Mrs Betty Bwanika, is an inspiring person who is an expert at mobilizing and organising rural women for social change.

 

The ones Answerid targets are the women in the communities.The women who are in those
far ends of the country. Those people are really poor. There are those who cannot even
afford the memberships for support groups. They are in homes, they are producing children,
and they are in this vicious cycle of poverty. Those are the women Answerid wants to help.

We were very much inspired by Answerid on how you can do small business in your home. From the trainings on juice making and mushroom processing we learnt that every women should at least have a small business at her home which is income generating. This also helps the women to send their children to school.
