Living Earth Uganda, in partnership with Centre for Women in Governance(CEWIGO) have trained 80 women leaders from Buliisa and Hoima Districts, in areas of: Advocacy and Civic Education. This training was meant to enhance their capacity to hold local leaders ac- countable to issues that affect their wellbeing.
The training is intended to empower the women with skills and knowledge to advocate and lobby their local Governments to address their needs in the community, as well as increase their participation in leadership and decision making. The women leaders have particularly acquired skills in advocay and lobbying, women rights and gender roles in community, resource mobilization, communication, and leadership skills. These trainings have been conducted in Hoima and Buliisa Districts, Western Uganda
“Since I started attending LEU Leadership Training workshops for women leaders in Buliisa facilitated by Center for Women in Governance (CEWIGO), I have been able to acquire knowledge and skills in advocacy and lobbying, communication, resource mobilization, conflict and problem solving, identifying community needs and how to present them in the council I benefited a lot from the exchange visit to Bushenyi District Local Government Council. I learnt how our compertriates from Bushenyi have been able to do their work successfully.
Am now ready to present myself before the elector- ate to seek for their vote in forth coming 2016 election, as the District Councilor representing Buliisa Town council, and have already started my grass- root campaigns. I thank Living Earth Uganda for these leadership trainings and continued support supervision, which has helped to build my confidence.”
