EMPOWERMENT OF WOMEN REMAINS A MAJOR COMMITMENT
Vision Group has continuously supported women to enable them earn a living and to enhance the livelihoods of poor HIV-Positive women in different parts of Kampala.
As part of this cause, the Company donated paper to Meeting Point International an organization located on the outskirts of Kampala city. The organisation was founded in 2003 by a medical doctor who had seen the plight of poor HIV-Positive women over the course of her work across the country. The majority of its members are women from Northern Uganda, who suffered the multi-dimensional effects of the LRA war.

Through meticulous scouring the Company’s CSR Committee identifies an organization that is helping change people’s lives using scrap paper as raw material to make paper beds which are sold in all corners of the world to earn the members are living. Through this process, the women are able to sustain themselves and their families.

Mrs. Bongomin, on behalf of Meeting Point, expressed gratitude to Vision Group, saying that the scrap paper was of so much value as it would be used to make beads, bags, money purses, belts, mats, among other crafts.
