MEACA Representative briefing the women participants

 In March 2013, AWEPON received a grant from Trade Mark East Africa (TMEA) to implement a project in four districts of Kampala, Masaka, Gulu and Mbale. The overall purpose of the project is to promote women's participation in the East African Regional Integration through increased trade opportunities, by enhancing women's understanding of the Common Market Protocol (CMP) and its benefits to women entrepreneurs engaged in both formal and informal business as well as increasing their access to market information.

The project therefore intends to increase trade volumes, quality and opportunities in the East African Region by building women's entrepreneurship skills and linking them to inter regional markets. The project will also identify issues that hinder women's effective participation in the regional trade including non tariff barriers (NTB's) and other cross boarder issues; and advocate for improved EAC trade policy frameworks that will enable women's effective participation in the regional trade.
