At ASSET we are committed to the advancement of women. Even though we do not turn away male students who apply to our scholarship program, we strongly encourage female applicants.

This particularly stems from the fact that all our beneficiaries are based in Uganda; a country where women, similar to several other places, still face tremendous barriers to economic success and freedom.

Contributing to the reduction of those barriers is a central tenet of our vision and our mission and as always, we thank all those who stand with us in this endeavor. So today we join the world in celebrating this 100th anniversary of the International Women’s Day.
