NAWOU, the National Association of Women Organizations in Uganda, has partnered with more than 80 independent women’s groups throughout Uganda. NAWOU has programs in education, health care, social welfare, lobbying and advocacy, microfinance, as well as a handicraft program. The focus is based on traditional skills and products, including natural dyes. NAWOU also helps with local and export marketing of the handicrafts.

Through NAWOU, artisans may receive loans, training, counseling, links to aid agencies and assistance with medication. NAWOU encourages microlending with the urban poor in Kampala. NAWOU also offers public education on HIV/AIDS, a significant problem in Uganda. Many of the women producing baskets for NAWOU are infected with HIV/AIDS, and income from their basket weaving provides support for them.
