Along with providing sustainable employment for our amazing Sseko women in Uganda, we provide a comprehensive social impact program for them, educating them on topics including budgeting and financial skills, computer training, English classes, health and first aid training. At Sseko, we believe that by creating an environment of dignity, honor, dedication and education, marginalized women in East Africa can pursue their dreams, improve their communities and make the world a more just and beautiful place.
This month we ran computer training sessions for the women on topics from Computers Introduction and Internet & Email to Computer Programs (Word and Excel). Some of the women had never touched a computer before these classes, and they were all eager to learn and visibly thrilled upon learning each new step and having the opportunity to practice their new skills and knowledge. This was a great opportunity for them to advance their knowledge and showed them the benefits of using computers and the internet in today’s world.
