Description : Small businesses run by women are a vital part of the Ugandan economy. The author, long-time development professional and founding Director of the United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM), here argues that by boosting women's entrepreneurship with positive policies and actions, policy makers and international investors can counter poverty while giving the world an economic justice and growth model. It is the first major research on the topic for twenty years. Seventy-four case studies are presented by the author, and allow Ugandan business women - farmers, merchants, entrepreneurs and leaders of groups concerned with micro and small enterprises - to speak for themselves about their successes and failures, and to give advice to those thinking about starting up.

Description : In recent years Uganda has almost become a byword for political instability, economic mismanagement and poverty, and the complete breakdown of law and order.

The country is now in the process of making a slow effort towards recovery and a return to more normal conditions. This new and completely revised edition of Uganda presents over 700 annotated items, including books and scholarly articles.

Description : Despite billions of dollars invested each year in economic and human development programs worldwide, poverty still exists. From promotion of trade and job creation to establishment of microfinance programs, concepts abound on how wealth can be redistributed to the poor. The gauging of progress in development has also had its share of supporters and detractors. Monitoring economic and human development has included measures of education, health, GDP and has brought about indices such as the Human Development Index (HDI) and the Millennium Development Goals. Yet the complexities of poverty also call for investigation of the influences of temporal and spatial aspects of development. Recent literature promotes time use, productivity and labor as critical components of poverty analysis in developing countries. Without time available for labor and building of social capital, no sustainable progress can be made in improving the lives of the poor. For women who live in rural Africa, time and space both influence and are influenced by economic poverty and development opportunities. Given this concept, this thesis investigates the role of rural Ugandan women's temporal and spatial relationships within development. Specifically, it seeks to establish the association between time poverty, mobility and development for twenty seven women farmers in south central Uganda. This thesis pursues these objectives in two ways. First, it seeks to discover the nature of time use among rural women in Uganda which contributes to or detracts from their development. That is, it attempts to identify factors which help explain rural women's time use in Uganda in relation to development. Second, it attempts to discover how time poverty is related to spatial influences for poor rural women in Uganda. This thesis is based on participatory quantitative and qualitative research which provides empirical and experiential evidence on the interaction between development, time poverty and spatial fixity for this group of women in Nakagongo, Uganda. It has shown the complexity and heterogeneity of women's development in this poor rural community. This research found evidence that suggests that time poverty is positively associated with development and health, but that overworking to the point of extreme time poverty has a negative relationship with both. Time invested in ventures such as raising livestock or producing crops for market is seen to be associated with higher levels of development. But non-agricultural income opportunities are limited and are found to have no significant influence on development levels. Research on the influences of space found that there is a significant effect on productive time use by both fixity and mobility. In terms of geographical influences, family interaction such as caring for relatives or receiving assistance from children increase spatial fixity, whereas higher levels of education decrease fixity. GIS mapping of travel patterns reveal that time use is often inefficient within close range of home and repetitive travel may account for lost time. Modes of transportation were found to be influential as well. Motorcycle taxis are frequently used for market exchange and increase mobility and efficiency at a low cost. The statistical results show that those women who are able to utilize motorcycles are more likely to be in the most productive range of work hours.

Description : This book explores and reflects on peacebuilding, which emerges from the experiences and realities of women’s lives in East Africa, specifically, in Uganda. The author argues that often these community based peacebuilding efforts are responses to women's struggles for survival — both individually and for their families and communities. Carefully analyzing education, women's roles, human rights, conflicts, disability and immigration, this book helps to understand African women's roles in development and peacebuilding in the region. The project will interest development studies and African politics scholars, graduate students, researchers and policy makers.

Description : Religion is defined by the author in terms of religious and cultural concepts. She explains the impact of religion and culture on gender and development in a patriarchal society. The assumptions, theories and philosophies related to gender and their impact on women in the development process are discussed. Gender is viewed from a historical perspective, focusing on the gendered differentiation of roles and societal expectations, and relates this to violence and HIV/AIDS, before dealing with gender within the context of development concerns. She also discusses the dominant faiths, including Hinduism, Confucianism, Judaism, Christianity, Islam, the Baha'l Faith and the various religions of the Near East as well as those of ancient Greece and Rome. The study also deliberates on women's liberation movements and addresses issues of gender empowerment and development. Finally it emphasizes the needs for gender mainstreaming in all government and NGO programmes to ensure that gender concerns and imbalances are addressed. Alice P. Tuyizere teaches Religious Education Methods in the School of Education at Makerere University.
