Women Leaders Exhibit Advocacy And Public Campaign Skills

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.
