Happy International Women’s Day 2023

We join the rest of the World to 𝐇𝐨𝐧𝐨𝐫 our Grassroots Women Champions who have taken action to support the delivery of our Community Driven Programs since inception. It’s time for us to reflect on the progress we have made in empowering women. TheΒ 2023 International Women’s DayΒ Theme reminds us to adopt the β€œDigitALL!Β in Advancing Innovation and technology for gender equality”

Today we’re not just celebrating strong women everywhere, but anyone who supports, advocates, and works towards gender equality and the fair treatment of women and girls!Β 

It’s 2023! Despite of much progress being made by various stakeholders, there is still so much to be done. Think about these statistics:

πŸ‘£ 1 in 3 Rural Women worldwide have experienced violence from an intimate partner;

πŸ‘£ 3 out 10 adolescent girls gets impregnated by either rape or forced marriage.

πŸ‘£ Every two seconds a Girl under the age of 18 gets married.

πŸ‘£ Every minute six girls are at risk of undergoing female genital mutilation.

These challenges won’t go away overnight, so it’s up to you to help change these statistics. Let us work together and make the world a better place for everyone. Together, we are challenging bias, stereotypes & discrimination against Women & Girls across Uganda & Beyond.

Join us today & Make a Difference!
