Joyce Kanyike - Business Administrator

Joyce Kanyike is the Business Administrator for International Volunteers Network. She is an hotelier, entrepreneur, and a Business woman recognized as the pioneer of the Village Savings and Loan Association (VSLA) in her local community in Uganda under the umbrella organization – Twesigangane Women Group, the organization she founded to empower rural disadvantaged women in Uganda.

Having been interested in community development since her school years, she has participated in several civil society activities. With the intention to be a part of change for a better future for all, she focused on educational opportunities for the disadvantaged groups. Rural young women, who were far more disadvantaged than any other group, became the top priority in her work. Seeing the growing interest in rural tourism as a window of opportunity for women, Joyce has worked with several village women’s associations in areas of skills development, entrepreneurship, local value chains and informed political participation which will enable women to ask for more.
