Le besoin : quel problème tentez-vous de résoudre ?
The process of transition in Uganda has presented challenges, opportunities and new roles for the women of Bukedea. It has also exposed development-related pressures and problems that previously were not so acute or did not exist. The degree of satisfaction with existing opportunities for personal and professional development directly influences the behaviour and expectations of women. In turn, their potential to reach an acceptable quality of life materially, healthily and behaviourally is greatly diminished. Situation analyses of the women sector reveal many challenges young people are facing, including:
Poverty at a rate of 44.7 %, unemployment level among women is 13.4%, Access to education the perception of 88% of women in rural areas, ICT access and skills at 79.9%

The Centre to flourish, effectively discharge its mandate, it is imperative that it embraces ICT in all its operations. The Centre is in the process of formulating an appropriate information management system to monitor and evaluate the women's social needs and an efficient way of disseminating information to all actors in this field. This technology will make the centre a fully fledged resource outfit that will enhance and meet its objectives unlike earlier similar ones that failed. ICT has relevance to the day-to-day livelihood of women. Community ignorance, political issue can affect the growth and more probably partners in the field of women
