News & Event 





Welcome to Bukoba Women Empowerment Association (BUWEA)

BUWEA was established in 2001 with a total of ten (10) members. The objective of forming BUWEA was to support women economically. Immediately after forming BUWEA women were trained on how to initiate small-scale production enterprises such as livestock keeping, agriculture, low capital business, and others depending on the local environment.

Women were encouraged to collect a small amount of money on monthly bases. This money was used to give soft loans to women used to run their production activities. BUWEA acquired an official registration in 2006 with the registration number 05/NGO/0080.

Currently, BUWEA has a total of 110 groups with a total of 1,050 active members in the Kagera region. Most of its members are coming from Bukoba rural, Bukoba urban, Missenyi, Muleba, and Karagwe.

Our Value & Ethics


HONESTY, loyalty, integrity, uprightness, a complete refusal to use any underhanded method to help win business or gain any kind of advantage. Neither growth, nor profit nor independence have any real worth unless they are won through complete honesty and probity. And everyone at Universe Advanced Technologies team knows that any lack of openness and integrity in our business dealings will be penalized at once.

BOLDNESS, which implies a flair for entrepreneurship, and a desire to take considered risks and show commitment (naturally linked to a firm determination to uphold one’s commitments). This is the very soul of competitiveness: firmness in making decisions or in forcing their implementation, an acceptance periodically to challenge one’s orientations and the status quo. Boldness also needs to be combined with a certain level of prudence and a particular clear sightedness, without which a bold manager is, in reality, merely dangerously reckless.

TRUST, meaning the willingness to empower both individuals and teams; to have decisions made as close as possible to the point where they will be put into practice. Trust also means giving priority, within the company, to real openness toward other people and the widest possible sharing of ideas and information.

FREEDOM, which means independence in thought, judgment and deeds, and entrepreneurial spirit, creativity. It also means tolerance, respect for others, for different cultures and customs.

MODESTY, that is simplicity, the very opposite of affectation, pretension, pomposity, arrogance and boastfulness. Simplicity does not imply naivety (simple does not mean simpleton!); it is more about being discreet, showing natural modesty, common sense, being attentive to others and taking the trouble to be understood by them. It is about being frank in work relationships, loosening up, having a sense of humor

TEAM SPIRIT, meaning solidarity, friendship, fidelity, generosity, fairness in sharing the benefits of collective work; accepting responsibilities and an instinctive willingness to support common efforts when the storm is raging
