The Emancipation of Women through Mobility in Uganda

We explore the transformative power of mobility in the lives of Ugandan women, drawing inspiration from Telva Somoza Vázquez’s article in NeoMotor.

The article by Telva Somoza Vázquez in NeoMotor, published on March 6, 2023, highlights the importance of mobility as a tool for women’s emancipation in Uganda. Through Women Rising for Africa, the project aims to empower Ugandan women by providing them with training to access independent mobility and job opportunities. The program focuses on training women in driving skills, first aid, self-defense, and economic and financial literacy. Additionally, the success of the pilot project implemented between July and November 2022 is mentioned, with a success rate of 75%. The story of Dathive, a mother from Rwanda, highlights the positive impact of the program, demonstrating how mobility can transform lives and communities.
