Katosi Women Development Trust (KWDT), registered in 19989, is a non governmental organization with an aim of improving the general living standards of poor, rural peasant communities in Uganda. Evolving out of the success of Katosi Women Fishing & Development Association, it is the development in the lives of the women members of KWFDA that attracted other women groups to join, prompting the formation of a network of women groups where women equitably share resources, knowledge and skills so as to improve on their lives. KWDT currently networks 16 women groups.
