KALIRO, UGANDA: The Resident District Commissioner (RDC) Kaliro district, Ms Billy Janet Mulindwa has tasked women to take shape in embracing government funded programs and fight unemployment amongst themselves.

“Women can’t all be employed by government, organisations, or other employers but we have a big opportunity that the reigning government introduced money for women under the Uganda Women Entrepreneurship Program (UWEP) where women are sponsored by government to start up businesses. There are also some groups of women under other programs like Emyooga program,” Ms Mulindwa said.

While speaking to DailyExpress as Uganda celebrates the International Women’s Day on Tuesday March 8, Ms. Mulindwa called upon women to get involved in such programs and start up businesses of their experience instead of waiting to be employed.

“Therefore, I call upon my fellow women to use this opportunity and do something because you can use this money to start up businesses in which you have experience and change your standards of living and as well develop your areas,” Ms. Mulindwa added.

Every year, Uganda joins rest of the world to commemorate the International Women’s Day which is celebrated on March 8. She (RDC Mulindwa) also applauded the mothers for their efforts in the community and says that families need working women ready to develop the family.

“Even at home, no one needs a woman who doesn’t work and adds nothing to the family. For a leader as well, no one desires to lead people who are financially strained,” RDC emphasized.

Ms Mulindwa urged all women to bring up their girl children to know that they can do any job regardless of gender. “To all fellow women, this is a generation for working and we have an opportunity that the government is supporting us” “We should also bring up our girls children to know that if someone can study to become a doctor, she can also study such, if someone can become an engineer then she can also be one such that when it comes for job opportunities, they can all apply for the job,” Ms Mulindwa said.

Meanwhile, the RDC also congratulated all women upon reaching the International Women’s Day and supporting government development programs.”I take this opportunity to congratulate all women in Uganda, the world in general but particularly those in Kaliro district upon reaching the International Women’s Day which is celebrated on March 8, every year,”

“I want to commend all women who have engaged in works to develop your areas and the country as a whole, thank you for supporting government programs and loving development,” she emotionally said.

International Women’s Day (IWD) is a global day of celebration for the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. Marked annually on 8 March, IWD is also an opportunity to reflect on and further the push towards gender parity.
