Social Business Project Empowers and Benefits Women in Africa and America

Brittany Merrill Underwood, who took up a teaching position in rural Uganda, has made it her life’s mission to empower marginalized women to “transform the physical and spiritual livelihoods of their families and communities.”

She poured her efforts to her Akola Project – “akola” meaning  “to work” in Uganda’s Lusoga dialect. The project, which operates as a nonprofit and a social business, aims to equip women with tools and resources they need to provide for their families and communities through their own hard work, enabling them to be self-sufficient and independent.
