Over the years, work towards gender equality has thrived on the solidarity of women at the grassroots, regionally and nationally.

It’s through this that different organizations, including the government, take the initiative to invest in growing spaces and programmes that strengthen women’s collaboration.

However, what happens to the boy child? Who invests in the male gender?

With more initiatives to support women, a new beacon of hope has risen in Uganda. The Forum for Women in Democracy (FOWODE), a champion for women’s rights over the years, is set to support the realization of the Imara Women’s Centre.

Isabella Akiteng, the Imara women’s centre coordinator, says women must come together to discuss and address issues related to democracy, how to engage in politics, gender equality, and women’s rights.

“This provides a space for women to share their experiences, ideas, and perspectives on how to promote and enhance women’s participation in democratic processes,” says FAWODE.

Despite advancements, Ugandan women face stark realities. Limited economic opportunities, underrepresentation in leadership, and pervasive gender-based violence impede the realization of their full potential.

FOWODE is set to celebrate women.

June 15, 2024, to recognize powerful women in Uganda.
