Bavubuka at Women Xpo

 
Its 23rd November2010 and November happens to be  women entrepreneurs' Month.  Bavubuka Foundation Team: Babaluku (Leader) Burney MC (EOW Team Leader) Gilbert Frank Daniel Bwette ( Bavubuka Media & Youth Journalism) Cyno MC (EOW CHAMPION -Luga Flow Instructor) chose to get involved on this day to learn about products and activities that were carried out by women in our community.


It was a moment for youth in Bavubuka Foundation learn and appreciate the work women in our community do to earn themselves a living.


This day was really insightful and full of beautiful simple heart felt initiatives led by both young and elder women who were passionate and filled with stories of triumph.





We got to learn about women communities that ventured in  Ground Nuts (peanut butter) production, Honey harvesting, Jewelry making, Environmental friendly Hand crafted products, Eggs, Uganda produced Wine, African Art, advance packaged charcoal, Fabric and many more. We were really presented the opportunity to see how our youth movement can be supportive in our sisters & mothers initiatives.


We would love to thank all the mothers that took their time to educate us about their products and made this day fun and educational for the Bavubuka Youth we look forward to seeing you again.
The exhibition was organized by ICON which   is a Ugandan based civil society organization that was formed to fully develop the leadership potential of women, young people and children. This includes, those marginalized or disadvantaged by human made or natural circumstances. Icon empowers such people to fully take the lead in developing innovative approaches to address under development, violence, gender inequality and gender inequity in all areas of society.
