A six-member Ugandan delegation today visited Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC) in Rajghat here as part of a visit to study various women empowerment projects being run by the commission.

The delegation, led by Goodwill Ambassador of Uganda to India Renu Varun, met KVIC Chairman V K Saxena and expressed gratitude for the Gandhi Charkha gifted by the Commission for the Gandhi Heritage Site at Jinja in Uganda.

"Since Uganda has an extensive micro, small and medium enterprise (MSME) sub-sector which accounts for approximately 90 per cent of the private sector, innovative KVIC programmes like 'Honey Mission', 'Kachchi Ghani oil ', tailoring, candle making, spinning and weaving activities can be a vehicle through which the rural poor and the jobless Ugandans can transform themselves tomorrow," a press release quoted Varun as saying.

"Uganda eagerly waits to collaborate with KVIC, to fetch some productive output as it can add value to the economy of the country," she said.

The Ugandan delegation said they were overwhelmed to see the KVIC programmes and their impact on job creation, particularly for women.
