CSJ worksin partnerships with market actors and provides a combination of technical andfinancial assistance.

Background Theproductivity and performance of women in Northern Uganda are significantlyconstrained by the dual responsibilities they bear.

While women are taking on leadingincome-generating roles, deep-rooted patriarchal norms still impose upon themthe primary obligation of childcare, with minimal involvement from men in thesetasks.

Childcare encompasses various time-consuming tasks such as cooking,feeding, bathing, cleaning and babysitting.

Consequently, the burden of childcarediminishes women's availability and mobility, hindering their ability to engageeffectively and efficiently in income-generating activities, both on and offthe farm, and maintain manageable workloads.

While the impact of childcarechores on women's productivity, performance, and workloads is widelydocumented, innovations that reduce women’s unpaid childcare burden are notreaching SHFs at scale in Northern Uganda.

Despite some results, the commercialviability and adoption of most existing products is weak.
