Women of Destiny

Inspire For a Better Woman

Due to high level of increase of diabetes in Uganda, Women of Destiny produce a very nutritious food valued with ZERO SUGAR contents.

Use Case

According to the 2016 World Health Organization (WHO) Global Report on Diabetes, the prevalence of diabetes and risk in Uganda has been increasing steadily with the numbers now at 2.7% for males and females at 3.0%, overweight at a total 0f 18.6% and obesity at 3.9%. Women of Destiny is making cakes with zero sugar content to fight against the increases of diabetic people in Uganda. These cakes are made with locally produced agricultural products like yellow bananas, potatoes and cassava flour. We are reaching people through spreading the awareness about the significant of our cake over other cakes being consumed.

Potential

Women of Destiny promotes the reduction of diabetic disorders through producing nutritious cakes with low sugar content, we believes that the consumption of our cakes with high nutritive value and low sugar content will subsequently reduce diabetes rates and enhance community with a healthy life. We will also create jobs for communities and by getting row material from farmers will provide market which will increase production. Rehabilitate and empower prostitutes to produce these cake, this will help transform their lives and hence reduction in the rate of prostitutions

Business Case

Women of Destiny trains former prostitutes with skills of making cakes which are zero sugar content using the available resources. The process begins with pilling and drying the potatoes and yellows that we buy from the farmers in the community. . Then we locally grind the potatoes and yellows using motor and pistol. After we sieve it. We cook cakes using the built oven from bricks and sand which reduce production cost. We pack our cakes in nice and neat plates covered very well. Here the product is ready to reach to our customers. We get 40% profits from each finished branded product sold, we also get money from our fellow scholars and mentors around the academy and we offer training on improved backing skills in different cake making companies in Uganda.

Objectives:

  1. To improve on the women’s standards of living
  2. To be the leading baking company in Uganda which solves high rate of diabetes and also elimination of prostitution in the world.
  3. To enhance high levels of productions through providing markets
