About WEND:
All of the women supported by WEND Africa were affected by the war in Northern Uganda. Many of our ladies were forced to become child soldiers or wives to LRA commanders. During war, nearly all the women were abducted, raped and abused. For the women who were lucky enough to escape, many returned HIV positive and with new children. After returning home, these women and children were ostracized due to their former affiliation with the rebels. Because these women were taken captive at a tender age, many lacked a basic education or a means to support themselves and their families.
In response, WEND Africa was born. We exist to dramatically improve the quality of life for women who have been affected. All of our ladies are provided with advanced training in tailoring, finance, and personal development, and paid a stable month salary to create high quality and fashionable bags. Through product sales and partnership with the United States, our seamstresses will become economically stable, pay for their children's school fees, and grow as leaders within their families and communities.
