Journey from the Margins Feminist Movement Strengthening in Uganda.

Journey from the Margins Feminist Movement Strengthening in Uganda.

This learning paper is based on evidence and learning from an intersectional women’s movement initiative delivered through collaboration in 2019 between six Uganda based women’s rights organisations; Freedom and Roam Uganda (FARUG), Forum for Women in Democracy (FOWODE), Mentoring and Empowerment Programme for Young Women (MEMPROW), National Association for Women’s Organisations in Uganda (NAWOU), National Union of Women with Disabilities of Uganda (NUWODU), Women’s International Peace Centre, (The Peace Centre) and by Womankind Worldwide, within the project Women’s Advocacy for Voice and Empowerment (WAVE) through inclusive platforms in Uganda.

The paper shares insights, analysis and reflection and also build upon a body of learning to support women’s rights and strengthening WMs. It also captures and collates some of the knowledge, learning and evidence around the focus and effectiveness of Womankind’s support to movement strengthening with diverse Women’s Rights Organisations in Uganda. It also explores the effectiveness of collaborative working as the mechanism through which this initiative was delivered and sets out a number of recommendations for women’s rights practitioners and donors..
