FEMRITE is interested in other development partners who are interested in Arts and Culture specifically women writing projects, in order to work with them to promote women writing in Uganda. There are many stories that women in Uganda need to tell, but they lack the means and the skills to do so.

FEMRITE Supporters
FEMRITE appreciates all the supporters who read her publications. FEMRITE books have appeared as supplementary readers on many schools' reading lists and a number of them are taught in higher institutions of learning under Ugandan literature. Many students have also studied some FEMRITE books for their academic research both at degree and Postgraduate levels.

FEMRITE collaborates with other women organisations, development partners, literary associations, publishers and booksellers, the media, individuals and other relevant agencies to achieve her objectives. FEMRITE is a member of various literary associations such as The National Book Trust of Uganda, The Reading Association of Uganda and The Uganda Publishers Association. In addition, individual members of FEMRITE are members of many other literary bodies.
