How does VLI make every woman count?
VLI works towards unveiling opportunities, providing a platform and empowering women and female youth with knowledge and skills to contribute to the development of their society by using a visionary approach to development.
The activities carried out by VLI include; Creating awareness on sexual reproductive health, Sensitizing women on the importance and use of family planning, Engaging women in income generating activities, Environmental Conservation, Mentoring, Networking and linking them strategic partnerships.
VLI was able to partner with African Youth Development Link to implement the Imagine Uganda Youth campaign to commemorate 50 years of Uganda's independence. The campaign involved using a multimedia approach to collect youth views on the kind of Uganda they want to see. This process resulted into the production of the youth Vision 2062 which informed the national vision 2014.
The organization has also reached out to 5 schools in Pallisa to carry out the stay in school campaign and the students in schools have as a result formed clubs that sensitize their peers through drama.
VLI has 10 women groups in the community and has already supplied five pigs to five families. When they produce, more families will be supplied with pigs to enhance their income.
The organization faces challenges in limited resources to run activities. Visionary Lady International currently runs on member contributions and volunteerism.
