Mirembe is a social initiative of the Inspiration Movement. It focuses on empowering Ugandan women and their families from weak rural areas to overcome poverty and become economically and socially independent. The overall goal is to redesign the women’s lives through art, social and entrepreneurial skills. By advancing fair trade strategies in craft and jewelry production, by offering microfinance opportunities and by endorsing sustainable employment opportunities and education, Mirembe improves the quality of life of poor and marginalized women, men, families, and communities in Uganda. Each year over one hundred women participate in the program. The project operates in partnership with NIAAD, the Naggenda International Academy of Art and Design in Namulanda, Uganda. The program is implemented by the Topaz Country director in Uganda, local art teachers, and social workers and supported by the staff of the NIAAD Academy. An International Board of volunteers supports all training and operational issues concerning the program. Read more
