Bukoba Women’s Empowerment Association Presentations

Women’s Global Connection is pleased to announced that leaders of our partner the Bukoba Women’s Empowerment Association, or BUWEA, are traveling to San Antonio and will be speaking around the community. Please come hear the stories of the successful collective that is lifting women and families out of poverty throughout many villages in Tanzania. WGC began its collaboration with BUWEA when our co-founder Sr. Dorothy Ettling met BUWEA Leader Regina Majaliwa and 7 other women in Tanzania in 2003. Since then, that group has grown to over 800 women.
