Request for Expression of Interest to Develop a Video on Women’s Participation in Peace Building in Uganda.

Deadline; Monday 8th February.

1.0 Background     

Women’s International Peace Centre, formerly Isis-WICCE, is a feminist organization with a mission is to ignite women’s leadership, amplify their voices and deepen their impact in recreating peace. The Peace Centre works in Africa, Asia, at regional and global level with women war survivors, women human rights defenders, and women’s rights organizations to amplify women’s voices and advocate for policies and programs tackling the impact of conflict on women and communities using our WEAVE model.

Our WEAVE model intersects research (on women’s specific experiences and needs), evidence-based advocacy (to influence national, regional and international policy and practice), holistic healing (to enable women’s wellbeing and participation in peace processes), skills and movement building (to equip WHRDs with necessary skills, build networks and facilitate exchange of strategies to advance women’s leadership for peace.

To address the gap of low participation of women in decision making in the informal and formal peace building and post-conflict recovery processes in Uganda, The Peace Centre designed a project, “Promoting Women’s Effective Participation in Peace Building in Uganda” that is being implemented in Yumbe, Adjumani and Kotido from June 2019 to March 2021. Project strategies included; Capacity building, conflict early warning and early response, providing platforms for strategic engagements, community awareness and accountability sessions.
