Rella Rights 4 Women’s Foundation officially launched the Kwan Hebwa Academy in Kampala on Wednesday 7th October 2020. Following the set SOPs, the brunch affair was attended by a limited number of Rella’s staff, membership, beneficiaries from the Hebwa program and a few partners. The Kwan Hebwa project currently under the Hebwa (Empower Her) program will run in the next 6 months and seeks to promote gainful self-employment towards economic development and financial independence through appropriate skilling for the LBQ women. In her introductory remarks, Winfred Mugambwa, the Programs Director at Rella Rights 4 Women Foundation said that poverty is one of the power gap dynamics that affects all human beings physically, emotionally and socially. “… It’s one of the reasons one will remain a slave to either a person or to a government because they depend on them,”Ms Mugambwa noted. She further asserted that the launch of this initiative is not only an achievement for Rella but also for the LBQ community and the women’s rights movement as a whole since all women are going to benefit from it.
