|Women NGOs and Groups in Uganda (ISIS- WICCE, 67 p.)|
Isis-WICCE is happy to publish the third edition of the Directory of Women NGOs and Groups in Uganda. to the changes that take place in organisations, the directory has been updated every year since its first appearance in 1995.
In August 1998, Isis-WICCE moved from its old location in Kansanga to Plot 32 Bukoto Street Kamwokya. This move was necessitated by the need to take services closer to majority of the organisations clientele.
The objective of me production of this directory is to make Uganda womens efforts towards their empowerment accessible to other women world-wide. It is also a relevant tool for promoting networking amongst the women organisations and groups in Uganda and elsewhere. The directory also highlights some organisations which can be approached by those needing specific information or guidance in specialised areas like rape, defilement, economic empowerment, etc.
For ease of reference the directory lists organisations and groups by district of operation. Organisations are further identified according to the services they offer or by their activities using letter
H - denotes those organisations whose activities relate to womens human rights
P - denotes professional organisations
SH - denotes Self Help women groups
If the information given on any organisation has changed or been omitted, we would appreciate clarification. A correction would be included in the next edition of the directory.
We wish to thank an organisations and individuals who have enabled the publication this directory. We appeal to women organisations in the country that are not listed to let us have then-information for inclusion in our next issue.
