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.
We want to thank our supporters and donors on this response program.
Without your generosity we wouldn't be able to reach these communities.
The SCOEN team believes no one woman deserves to be violated and that attending to each single case helps us build a culture that respects women’s right to safety. We thank all our supporters for sharing your gifts with us. Together we will achieve Gender Equality.
This coming Monday is International Day of Climate Action. While the destruction of our natural environment affects everyone, it hits women and girls harder. The facts show that women and girls suffer most from environmental injustice due to existing gender inequalities.
For instance, women grow most of the food in many countries, but have no say about the land they farm. Although agriculture remains the most important employment sector for women in rural areas, in only 37% of countries are the rights of women to own, use and manage land equal to those of men.
Please help us to continue to support the women we work with, to empower women and girls to take action on climate change, land rights and environmental destruction.
