Women in dairy production from over 20 districts in Uganda on Tuesday, April 16, gathered at the Dairy Development Authority (DDA) in Entebbe, for a five-day training.

The meeting is courtesy of the Grow Project aimed at helping women to boost their farm products and income.

According to Agnes Audax Baguma, the acting director of technical services at DDA, the training is for women who add value to dairy products.

Baguma said the training is also an opportunity for women to network in several ways, such as sharing challenges, problem-solving, and supporting each other.

“Women will be trained on safety measures and quality standards to be able to sell their products beyond Uganda,” she added.

She explained that they also invited experts from the Uganda National Bureau of Standards (UNBS) who will equip women with knowledge of the required products on the market.

Baguma applauded the private sector foundation under the GROW project for putting women at the forefront.

She said women will access a grant at 1% interest to boost their businesses.

According to Dian Naturinda Makobore, a communications specialist, the GROW project partnered with DDA to train women.

“This is a fully funded training to support women at different levels to ensure their businesses grow,” she says.

The Generating Growth Opportunities and Productivity for Women Enterprises (GROW) project is a World Bank-funded program through the government of Uganda to support women entrepreneurs transitioning from micro to small and from small to medium enterprises.
