Happy International Women's Day 2024!


Dear ILaED.org Members and supporters,


As we celebrate International Women's Day this year, we at ILaED.org want to take a moment to highlight one of our projects that embodies the spirit of this day: Empowering Women in Art & Crafts for economic value in Uganda, a collaboration with GSWIM.

Remember: In 2022, we embarked on a journey to empower and motivate women in the Ugandan art and craft community.

Through this initiative, we aimed to:

  • Enhance their creativity by providing training and workshops.

  • Support them in "leveling up" their artistic skills to create and produce unique, commercial crafts.

  • Equip them with the skills and resources needed to transform their talents into economic opportunities.

This project wasn't just about creating beautiful artwork; it was about empowering women and fostering a supportive network where they could learn, share, and thrive.


The results? We witnessed incredible growth and transformation. Women honed their skills, produced commercially viable crafts, and gained access to new markets. This, in turn, led to improved livelihoods and sustainable households, ultimately paving the way for a brighter future for these talented women and their families.


This Women's Day, We Celebrate:


  • The powerful impact of investing in women's talent and creativity.

  • The ripple effect created by empowering women to contribute to their communities and families.

  • The vibrant artistic legacy that was built by these empowered women throughout the project.

Join Us in Celebrating Women!


While our Ugandan project has concluded, the spirit of empowering women continues to drive our mission at IlaED.org. Here's how you can be part of the movement:


  • Spread the word! Share this message and raise awareness about the importance of supporting women's economic empowerment.

  • Visit our website: Learn more about our past accomplishments, current initiatives and activities and ways to get involved in future events and projects.

  • Participate in our activities: For example, you could save the date for our workshop on Women and entrepreneurship using traditional knowledge and technology. And plan so you don’t miss follow-up activities!

  • Consider a donation: Your generosity helps us continue empowering women around the world. You can support us by heading to www.ilaed.org/membership

Together, let's create a future where every woman has the opportunity to thrive.

Happy International Women's Day 2024!

In solidarity,

The ILaED.org Team
