The Minister for Lands, Housing, and Urban Development, Judith Nabakooba, has urged women in Mityana to embrace new technologies as a way to foster development and wealth creation.

Nabakooba, who was speaking at an event organized by women in Mityana to celebrate Women’s Month March, said the new technologies would help women in their day-to-day work which in turn would improve their livelihoods.

“I encourage you women of Mityana to embrace the new technologies.  These technologies will assist you in your day-to-day work, allowing you to improve your livelihood,” she said.

She added that the internet has many platforms that can provide useful knowledge in agriculture and business, among others.

Nabakooba also spoke about the new $217m (Shs.803b) World Bank funded project that was launched by President Museveni on March 8.

She explained that the project is meant to support and uplift women in business to thrive and become better breadwinners for their families.

“I also want to talk about the money that our dear President Museveni launched on Women’s Day. The money is meant to support women in business to uplift themselves,” she explained.

The Minister also encouraged women in Mityana to take advantage of the Parish Development Model, saying the money involved is meant to lift Ugandans out of poverty.

Nabakooba, who also donated hand hoes during the celebration, stated that if they are used properly, poverty in the district will be a thing of the past.

This year’s, Women’s Day was celebrated globally under the theme: DigitALL: Innovation and technology for gender equality.
