Your Voice Matters
Dwona Initiative is a nonprofit organisation based in Kampala, Uganda that is dedicated to amplifying girls and women’s voices through removing barriers to education, supporting entrepreneurship and creating safe places in an effort to eradicate gender-based violence, gender inequality and poverty.
For girls and women to be empowered, their voice needs to be fully heard and embraced in at levels of society. However, these voices are silenced by many factors like; the epidemic levels of gender-based violence to biased laws and norms that prevent them from attaining or completing education, owning property, working, and making decisions about their own lives. We believe that it is a critical part of empowerment that enables girls and women to share their perspectives on various issues, contribute and participate ably in the socio-economic development of their communities.
