The British Council and EU funded project titled, “Action for strengthening institutions and communities in promoting women’s rights”, has continued to make positive impacts in the lives of the beneficiaries. The project focused on skilling women groups in saving and social enterprise. One of the beneficiaries Achola Juliet of Aluka Faithful Group- Inomo sub-county, Apac District confessed that the training she got from ACFODE on how to make cakes has continued to help her.
Juliet says for community events like weddings, traditional marriage, birthday parties and baptism, people always contact her to make cakes for them; and with this income she has been able to support her family. “I get a minimum of 4 orders per week and I make an average of 250,000/= per week and this has help me to pay school fees for my two children very well, am so grateful to ACFODE”.
