Project Report | Jun 16, 2023
Continuous progress report

By Lucas Akol | Project Leader

GBV prevention and response activities continue to be a priority and partners work closely with the Government in the areas of social services, security, and the judiciary, with the aim of improving access to quality of services related to GBV prevention and response.

There is a need to increase the number of GBV case workers and support to community structures. One-stop centres should be established across health facilities to improve the clinical management of rape victims. Livelihood interventions and immediate material support remain key to support survivors of GBV and those at high risk. Other priorities are the establishment of mobile courts, the refurbishment or construction of safe shelters and support to Uganda police to ensure safety for women, improve investigation of cases and increase apprehension of perpetrators.

Families are being forced to the very edge of survival. In parts of Uganda extreme poverty caused by, climate change and economic instability is putting families at risk.

Your Women’s Empowerment Gift helps set up women-led savings and loans groups to support local women to set up their own businesses, providing an income to buy food, shelter and safety.

The program supports women: -
