Our Story

Lets ride together

In 2018, Liliane Felix embarked on a journey that would change not only her life but the lives of countless women across Uganda. As a photographer, her first trip to Uganda opened her eyes to the vibrant culture and breathtaking landscapes of the country. But amidst the beauty, she also witnessed the challenges faced by women, particularly in terms of safe mobility and independence.

It was during this journey that Liliane, a passionate rider, recognized the transformative potential of motorcycles, locally known as “bodabodas,” in empowering women. With a spirit of determination and compassion, she made a bold decision to take action.

Four years later, after extensive research and unwavering dedication, Liliane founded Women Rising for Africa. At the heart of this organization was the groundbreaking program WOW (Women on Wheels), aimed at providing women with access to motorcycles and the training needed.

Through WOW, women across Uganda gained not only mobility but also newfound independence and empowerment. They could now navigate their communities with ease, access education and employment opportunities, and participate more fully in social and economic life.
