Haki Mkononi project rolled out

The proposed project builds on the concluded 5-year Raising Her Voice Project (RHVP) which was conceived and designed to influence the Uganda Government to ratify and domesticate the Africa Union charter on Women’s Rights without harmful reservations; and to contribute to promoting the role of women in the decision-making processes affecting their lives. The five-year Project was launched in 2008 and ended in March 2013. This project will be part of the 2nd phase of the RHV with started march 2014. Although the 2nd phase of the project focuses on fostering Local women’s activism and leadership to advance Women’s land rights and fight against VAW, the 3rd year of the 2nd phase of RHV will only focus on Women’s Land rights.
This project aims to build on this momentum by specifically building capacity of rural women and women leaders to be at the forefront of advocating for the issues impinging on their rights especially the right to Land especially land inheritance and succession rights. The project will building women’s capacity to engage with the governance framework and cultural institutions at different levels so that functional land management structures are put in place and responsive to the needs of women.
The project which was kick started in December 2016 is being implemented by UWOPA, UWONET, ACFODE, and FIDA with support from Oxfam and will be concluded by 28th Febraury 2017.
