From 12th-16th Feburary 2018, the Femlead Non-Executive team from UK, France, Netherlands and USA visited Busiiro Community in Uganda. During their visit, among other activities they met the head, some of the teachers as well as the girls at the Busiiro Secondary school and Healing Focus Orphanage Center – Primary school. They also travelled to the Busiiro villages and distributed banana suckers to the women groups which had been organized by Esther Bagoole.
The women were thrilled by the steps taken in reaching out to their community; a clear way to empower and develop the area. Many danced and sang joyful songs after receiving the banana suckers.
