Making UN Resolution 1325 A Reality For Women

The report presents the highlights of Isis-WICCE’s annual peace exposition that was held in 2010 to celebrate 10 years of the United Nations Security Council passed Resolution. The exposition provided time and an effective platform for grassroots women’s organizations working in the area of peace and security in Uganda to share successful strategies and to review the extent to which government has implemented the resolution and to call upon it to implement the National Action Plan for the implementation of UNSCR 1325 and Goma Declaration.
It highlighted how various grassroots women’s activists and organizations have been able to interpret this international framework into one they are able to utilize in their communities. It also presented a valuable opportunity to share information, best practices, and successful strategies, and highlight the challenges and gaps that will inform the way forward in the implementation of the resolution as well as the National Action Plan.

Centralizing Women’s Agency In Peace Building And Ending Conflict; The Burundi Crisis

Burundi conflict is one of the prominent intrastate conflicts threatening stability in the Great Lakes Region and characterized by high rates of civilian casualties and massive human rights violations. As women and girls who want to see peace and calm restored in Burundi, the Barundikazi who were passionately interacting on media but had not met physically sought space to interact, connect, bond and chart out their collective course of action. A consultative meeting brought together the women’s movement from the region (Rwanda, South Sudan, Kenya and Uganda) in solidarity with the Burundi women to strategize for their effective participation in the dialogue for restoration of peace and security in Burundi.

The report presents the highlights of the 4th Peace Exposition held in Kotido district of the Karamoja sub-region.

The Abused Generation; My Child, My Agemate

The report documents Isis– WICCE’s annual Peace Exposition that was held in Kasese in 2011 that focused on ending child marriage in the district. It provided a space for different stakeholders to speak out strongly against the practice of marrying off young girls before the age of 18 that has for long existed in Kasese district. It is a practice that has cast a dark shadow over the future and lives of many young girls.
