8th March is internationally celebrated as women’s day. The ACI- Uganda team was invited to an event in Wakiso discrit, Katabi – Entebbe, where all the women with some men converged to carry out different fun activities while celebrating the woman. The day was very fruitful as the team discovered the women’s success and challenges. The fact that we had contributed to the success of some women in the area through our micro finance project made us proud.

Women and young girls competed in activities like bicycle riding , banana ( matooke peeling) among others. Messages were passed on preservation of culture and being a lady in everything. The district woman MP Rose Mary Seninde was in attendance and argued women not to spend beyond their means. She asked them to practice the saving culture because the woman today has assumed the care taker role in a family.
