    • Project

      Influencing change for women voices and rights strengthens women’s leadership and participation in decision-making processes and platforms at local,  regional and national levels while enhancing women’s agency and contribute to their full enjoyment of their own fundamental human rights.

      According to records from 10 selected sub-counties in Gulu, Omoro and Nwoya districts, participation of women in development planning and other public spaces was estimated at 43% only. This means that the district development plans do not reflect and take care of women’s development priorities. This gap is exacerbated by quality and effectiveness of representation of women’s voices in councils at district and sub-county levels.

      From the records of Gulu and Amuru district Clerks to Council, women councilors’ participation is rated at less than 33% for Gulu and 28% for Amuru districts respectively. This implies that women councilors have limited capacity to effectively engage issues of development, influence outcomes of debates to improve the social and economic circumstances of women and other vulnerable groups.

      The project influences women leaders at sub-county, district and national level to advocate for allocation of resources/funds to critical women needs and sectors like maternal health, water and education. Overally, the project seeks to improve gender sensitive plans and budget allocations at the district and sub-county levels.
