Overview

Ride 4 a woman is a women's NGO that has 300 women members and empowers women by teaching them skills that they can use to earn a living. You can come and spend a day with the women and learn how to weave a simple basket, learn how to cook a traditional meal, or learn how to dig using a hoe. You can spend a whole day or just afew hours with the women. Its such a great experience and one we recommend highly while in bwindi.
