Background

WOMEN SMILE UGANDA is a women founded, women led and women focused social enterprise that was founded in 2016 by a group of like minded young women entrepreneurs with an aim of transforming the lives of our fellow women through training them on how best they can use vertical farming mechanisms to earn a living and food for their families, we go on to train females on how to make composite manure from biogradable wastes through use of vermicomposting. We also work towards improving the health of women through project "Zero Fistula for every woman" which aims at eliminating fistula health cases, connect farmers to markets, educate them about soil fertility through an Artificial Intelligence device, recommendations for fertilisers and crops to grow and all this is through an artificial intelligence system, We also aim at a future that involves reduction of plastic waste in the environment with a project that aims at building houses with help of plastic bottles.

Our Impact

Since the start of the organization, WOMEN SMILE UGANDA has manufactured 300 gardens and most has been sold to the central ,followed by western and others follow as shown in the graph. This has come hand in hand with training of 880 women on how to use the gardens and how to manufacture composite manure

As of poject Zero Fistula for every woman 426 women have been provided with information about the causes of fistula, how to prevent it and many have been linked to various medical centers for fistula treatment using our artificial intelligence system

Our Plastic Bottles Housing project has trained 175 people have been reached with training on how to build houses using plastic bottles filled with soil. 105 of these people have embraced the innovation and constructed houses. This has improved housing in many slum areas of Kampala



At Women smile we intend to increase our financial projections from $103,000 that was generated in 2018 to $420,000 by 2023. We also intend to reach 3500 women in 2023 with vertical farms compared to 880 women we reached in 2018. we also intend to extend our services to the whole country compared to now where we work in particular selected regions.By 2023 we intend to link more than 2000 women to operation wealth creation for improved seeds. we intend to partner with more than 20 financial institutions who will be giving out farms inform of loans to customers . At the end of the Day we intend to improve the food security of of over 2000 house holds .

What we do

MANUFACTURING OF VERTICAL FARMS

Insight

This project embarks on training women on how best they can use vertical farming mechanisms to earn a living and food for their families. We go on to train female on how to make composite manure from bio gradable wastes through use of vermicomposting.We also intend to reach 3500 women in 2023 with vertical farms compared to 880 women we reached in 2018. we also intend to extend our services to the whole country compared to now where we work in particular selected regions.By 2023 we intend to link more than 2000 women to operation wealth creation for improved seeds. we intend to partner with more than 20 financial institutions who will be giving out farms in form of loans to customers . At the end of the Day we intend to improve the food security of of over 2000 house holds .


Soil Lab at Home

Insight

Soil lab at home is an Artificial Intelligence system that uses the sensor technology to determine the amount of different physical, chemical, biological Properties of the soil and results got are sent to the farmers’ phone on a real time basis using Blue tooth technology.

The famer is required to avail five samples of the soil per acre (from the four corners of the land and from the middle of the farm).he will also be required to turn both the device ,Blue tooth and the Mobile application on his phone .

The pair will start communicating and exchanging information about the results and recommendation and this will be real time and presented to a famer in the local language.

ZERO FISTULA FOR EVERY WOMAN

Cause

I am Nakigozi Lillian a young female entreprenuer, founder of Women Smiles Uganda. I am a victim of fistula that's my mother suffered from prolonged labor, this was because the hospital was very far from our home

Secondly we didn't believe in giving birth from the hospital, my mother took long without giving birth and she spent a long time unattended to by a doctor which in the end caused fistula. After my birth, our father abandoned us after realizing that my mother had fistula, she was passing out a lot of urine which made my father tired and disgusted.

As if that was not enough, in the community where we were living my mother was discriminated referring to her as an outcast and blaming her for every problem that happened in our family

I was left alone with my mother but because she was a very strong lady she battled with fistula, she tried to visit the village health center for treatment but it wasn't there. She resorted to using local herbs to treat fistula unfortunately the local herbs made the situation worse and later on my mother died.

At her burial people blamed me for the cause of my own mother's death because she suffered from a prolonged labor during my birth. This tormented me so much and after seeing all the horrible situation my mother passed through, I pledged that i will help my fellow women to fight against fistula
