Women with Disabilities from Patiko sub-county, Gulu, during their group meeting

The tremendous work of Paralegals towards the mobilization, organization and formation of groups for Women and Girls with Disabilities to benefit from Village and Savings Loan Associations was exhibited in Patiko Sub-county, Gulu, when Women with Disabilities turned up in large numbers to their Village Savings and Loan Association meetings.

With 30 members in total, the groups were started as a result of the Sexual and Reproductive Health Rights training carried out in the four sub-counties of Gulu district.

The formation of groups within Women with Disabilities has enabled them to borrow funds from their VSLAs to either startup their own businesses or boost already existing ones.
