She Decides Uganda

SheDecides Uganda was officially launched in June 2018 at the SheDecides Uganda Open House.

Since launching, SheDecides Uganda has become a vibrant and proactive movement taking action to create positive change for women and girls in Uganda.

Unsafe abortions, lack of access to contraception, female genital mutilation and cutting as well as child, early and forced marriage are among the most harmful practices in Uganda. Combined, these challenges negatively impact millions of women and girls every year.

 
SheDecides Uganda has provided an opportunity for Friends of the Movement in the country to highlight, combine and catapult their actions to greater heights. Working collectively, people from a diversity of professional and cultural backgrounds are coming together to inspire change in Uganda and East Africa, and create a world where SheDecides.
