Pauline, a member of the Gulu Women Dairy Farmers Association (GWDFA) in Northern Uganda, tends to a heifer that was given to her during their group’s collaboration with Heifer International. Gulu was the epicenter of a 20-year war in Northern Uganda that resulted in widespread displacement of the majority of the population. Trying to restore their former livelihoods, countless community-based organizations (CBOs) and self-help groups have emerged in Gulu, including GWDFA. Through the empowerment of women and a firm focus on economic growth, GWDFA has enjoyed increasing success which has reverberated to each member and sustained the organization since 1997.
