Field Reports

In late 2014 the Uganda Fund launched a new 3-year initiative, generously supported by the MacArthur Foundation, to provide redress to survivors of conflict-related Sexual and Gender-Based Violence (SGBV) in northern Uganda through sub-granting to community based and non-governmental organizations to conduct livelihood projects.

With funding from the SGBV project, the Justice and Reconciliation Project’s Women’s Advocacy Network (WAN) is supporting five women’s groups in income-generating projects (IGAs), vocational skills trainings, revolving loan and savings schemes and financial management trainings in order to increase income entering their households, vocational skills relevant to their group IGAs, access to revolving loan and saving schemes and capacity to conduct personal financial management.

Ketty Anyeko, Project Lead, has been out in the field following the progress of one of WAN’s groups, the Kuc Odwogo Women’s Group in Barlonyo-Lira district. Kuc Odwogo means “Peace has returned,” and they are bringing these words to life through their collective farming efforts. Through the production of soya beans and goat rearing, the women are generating cash to help provide for the basic needs of their families and are increasing their economic independence. Kuc Odwongo is one of many women’s groups working towards gender justice through WAN’s advocacy efforts. The Uganda Fund is proud to be their partner and supporter.
