    • Project

      The Voice project of KRC will enhance the capacity of vulnerable women and youth within the Basongora and Batuku pastoralists communities to increase their participation in decision-making processes, influencing on policies and advocacy against exploitation, abuse, violence and better service delivery in education and health in Uganda. The project has a specific focus in Ntoroko and Kasese Districts.

      1. Limited documented evidence and exposure of cases of abuse, exploitation and violence in relation to girl-child school dropouts, early marriage, limited access to reproductive services and limited access to education
      2. Limited knowledge of vulnerable women and youth on education and health policies, obligations and roles of duty bearers
      3. Inferiority and lack of confidence among vulnerable women and youth and
      4. Limited space for participation in decision-making and advocacy for vulnerable women and youth.

      The project will primarily utilise women and youth concerns, experiences and lessons from Ntoroko and Kasese Districts to build synergies with actors from other pastoral communities in Uganda to influence the national policy agenda for inclusiveness.
