Local entrepreneurship

DSC05834As Karamoja Arts we like to stimulate the local entrepreneurship. It started with the local arts and crafts producers. When the quality was good, we would buy from them: in this way we opened the shop. We found the market… they produced the products at home.
But next to arts and crafts we see mainly the women, very active in agriculture. That’s how we now try to enhance their products and sell it also in the shop, so that their income will increase. Peanut and sesame butter, honey and sunflower oil. The women also started other activities like bread baking, crisps and popcorn making. In these activities we stimulate and advice where needed; the link with the Mothers Union group in Kotido works good in this.
