Luweero Women’s Marketing Center Launched

Pomp and colour marked the opening of the first ever women marketing center in Luweero District-Uganda. At the same occasion the Luweero Women’s Agro Traders Co-operative (LUSWATCO) was launched and awarded a grant of 10 million Uganda Shillings ($2,941) as startup capital. The marketing center comes on the heels of the information center launched last year.

Launching the marketing center, the Executive Director of EASSI Marren Akatsa-Bukachi  said “We want you to display all the products in the resource center, improve their quality, storage, preservation, and branding since all the equipment needed to do all that is available.”

The launch was attended by Luweero district Senior Labour Officer Kisitu Magambo Fred, Commissioner Moses Kayire and the Resident District Commissioner (RDC) Mrs. Alice Muwanguzi who all commended EASSI for the initiative and pledged unwavering support to the Women’s Economic Justice (WEJ) Project. The Marketing center is one of the activities under the WEJ project that is implemented in partnership with National Association of Women Organisations in Uganda (NAWOU and the Federation of Women Lawyers in Uganda (FIDA Uganda).
