Educating communities about birds and their conservation
Insufficient finances to conduct trainings, purchase birding equipment, mobilizing women for the activities.
Perceptions and Attitude of the society towards Women
Outreach to young ladies in high schools, universities and institutions of higher learning.
Increased Women Tour Leaders in Uganda
Uganda just like any other African country is a male-dominated society where majority of the decisions are made by men thus leaving the women behind and Tourism is not an exception. This was one of the factors that led to the start of a club to unite women. The Uganda Women Birders Club started in May 2013 as an initiative to increase the number of women participating in Nature Guiding. The Club has been growing with increasing number of ladies taking part in the trainings as well as increasing support from our partners.
Tourism is among the big earners to the economy of Uganda and we would like to participate wholesomely in this drive to make Uganda the most preferred Tourism Destination.
To produce the best Nature Guides in the world.
To build capacity of women in Nature Guiding, especially birding and to be the trusted tourism ambassadors in Uganda..
To increase the number of professional women participating in Nature Guiding.
To enrich women with knowledge on birds and consequently participate in their conservation as a way of creating jobs.
To make women ambassadors of Uganda in the tourism industry
To professionalize guiding such that the people guiding our tourists are well equipped with knowledge and are able to pass it on to the next generation.
