UGANDA - Women Rights Initiative
UBI is provided to support domestically abused women and girls helping them to support their families. Before receiving the UBI, women victims of domestic violence could not financially afford to leave their oppressor. Thanks to the UBI, women are now able to financially support themselves and their children through basic necessities, allowing them to not return to the conditions of abuse. Since then, two of them - Rose and Kigere - started a small shop, selling fruits and vegetables in their village.
To facilitate transactions within the community, Rose and Kigere are now accepting Celo dollars.
