Julie and the “PV girls” of BRAC Uganda’s ELA program

This week has only brought us one blog from our fellows in the field, but it is definitely worth a read. Julie Kriegshaber, our fellow in Uganda has been working with BRAC Uganda and has seen firsthand the positive effect that its Empowerment and Livelihood for Adolescents (ELA) program has had on the local community. In her blog post “Empowering Women through… Videography?“, Julie introduces us to one of the most successful subgroups within ELA, the PV group, which seeks to help local women by giving them the tools for greater self-confidence. For more on BRAC Uganda and its PV program check out Julie’s post. Also, don’t forget to check out last weeks’ updates for more on KF-18’s adventures in the field.
