MUBS Crafting Curriculum For Women in SME Entrepreneurship

Tuesday, September 12, 2023

Kampala, Uganda | THE BLACK EXAMINER | The Ministry of Gender Labour and Social Development has announced that Makerere University Business School (MUBS) is developing a curriculum to train women entrepreneurs in core business skills for micro and small enterprises. This initiative is part of the $217 million World Bank-funded Generating Growth Opportunities and Productivity for Women Enterprises (GROW) project, which aims to provide entrepreneurial services to help women expand their businesses in specific locations, including host and refugee districts.

Project Coordinator Alex Asiimwe, also the Commissioner of Labour, Industrial Relations at the Ministry of Gender, views this curriculum development as part of a comprehensive strategy to address the challenges faced by women entrepreneurs in Uganda. The Gender Ministry’s Communications Officer, Frank Mugabi, mentions that women entrepreneur groups are being encouraged to participate in grant competitions to secure government support.

Last week, a World Bank team began a 10-day mission to assess the progress of the GROW project, which is led by the Ministry of Gender, Labour, and Social Development, in collaboration with the Private Sector Foundation Uganda as an implementing entity.
