Our purpose is to create job opportunities for disadvantaged girls and women.

Twekolerere Women’s Development CC is located in Makerere II- Zone C in Kampala district, and convenes Christian and Muslim women and men to respond to the prevailing social problems by using theatre as a tool for education. They address important issues affecting their community such as HIV and AIDS prevention, poverty, environment, and education. This performing group embodies their messages in songs, dances and drama; engaging the community through radio, TV, and live stage performances. Their primary activity is using performing arts for “edutainment” and income generation at both local and international platforms. They also operate small income generating initiatives such as tree planting and poultry farming, by employing individuals who are affected by or infected with HIV and AIDS, as a means to earn their livelihood. Twekolerere CC has about 50 members with 14 years of staging artistic performances and attracting audiences of all different faiths.
