Poverty is the result of inequality in multiple spheres. To address poverty, inequality must be included in the conversation. WGEF believes that elevating women's voices and providing a safe vehicle to address challenges is critical to increasing human security and women's empowerment. Every year, WGEF hosts Kikopo Pa Mon, Creating a Voice for Women, enabling women a stigma free environment to challenge their communities to step up and do better, promoting equality and justice. Last year the participants focused on Women's Role in Peacebuilding in northern Uganda. Every year women choose the topic according to what challenges they face. This year, in June, women will begin to organize and create the event. It is critical that we are fully funded to enable all who wish to participate a chance and create an event that is relevant and meaningful.
