Building women grassroots movement in Uganda

An UNDEF project in Uganda works to build a critical mass of women grassroot activists who demand accountability and improved service delivery to communities. The project seeks to influence democratic processes through empowering communities to hold their leaders accountable and to demand for gender-sensitive service delivery. It also supports legislators in enacting gender-sensitive legislation and programmes. The project held a women's conference to provide an avenue for women to assess progress on the demands on their agenda.
