Hintergrundinformation


Uganda Women’s Network (UWONET) is a nonprofit organization established in 1993 working to advance public policy regarding women's rights. It is an umbrella organisation of national women's organisations and individuals with the goal to promote women’s rights and access to justice, further women’s economic justice and empowerment and strengthen women’s representation in leadership and democratic governance.


UWONET has partnered with ADA before. The last project aimed to improve local accountability for service delivery in four districts of northern Uganda. The present project will now focus on strengthening local capacities to advocate against GBV and improve gender responsiveness in water sector service delivery, women’s land rights and economic empowerment. In addition, the link between local and national advocacy on these issues will be strengthened
