Women of Kireka, Uganda
Katie  Gleason

Katie worked with Women of Kireka (WoK) in Kampala, Uganda. WoK is composed of 20 internally-displaced women selling hand-crafted jewelry locally and internationally. As the program assistant/coordinator, she assisted the women in building a sustainable business model dependent on strategic profit. Working alongside the women as well as with Project Diaspora, Katie will had the opportunity to contribute to and learn from a dynamic social enterprise whose ultimate goal was a course for independence, allowing it to flourish as a community-owned business with minimal outside supervision.
