The Rock Of Ages Development Cooperative (ROAD) is a community project in Uganda aimed at promoting women owned businesses.
Goal 8: Decent Work & Economic Growth
The project was showcased to the World Bank Group, illustrating how the private sector is a catalyst in development through private-public partnerships and corporate social responsibility. The concept of Women-owned Business that are helping bring communities out of poverty have transformed the lives of the locals. Samples of their main product line of bags have been showcased at global meetings such as Korea at the Seoul conference held by the World Bank Group and received great reviews.
Access to global heritage exhibitions is key to developing sustainable partnerships for ROAD. We are excited for the access to global markets this platform provides.
