Empowering Women In Bwindi Villages

Welcome to Ride 4 A Woman

Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, in the south west of Uganda, is home to the endangered mountain gorilla. A large community of local people inhabits the edge of the national park in a village called Buhoma. The women of this community form the cornerstone of their families; raising the children, working the land, tending to their animals and performing many other daily tasks that fill their days from sun up to sun down. Since these women are so busy trying to make ends meet, they do not have the opportunity to learn new skills, develop a career, or earn money. Often, the women will explain how they feel undervalued and disempowered. To help these women, Habasa Evelyne and her husband Rubalema Denis formed Ride 4 A Woman in 2009. The program started by renting bicycles to tourists with the hope of generating money to start a job-training program for the women. As time went on, there became a need for bike maintenance so Evelyne and Denis started training local women
