The Women’s Empowerment sector provides opportunities to address gender inequality and inequity in Uganda. According to national statistics, Uganda has passed laws and policies that accord equal status to women and men and has attained gender parity in primary and secondary school enrollment. Nonetheless, the country has yet to overcome gender inequality in access to services and opportunities, such as employment and financial services; this is due in part to social norms that serve to reinforce the subordinate status of women and downplay their contributions and potential for participation in the country's development. The sector supports women and girls in accessing quality education, health care, dignified work, ownership rights for property and technology, and equal participation in political and economic decision making, which leads to social, economic and environmental sustainability.
This sector provides participants with hands-on experience and increases knowledge on the challenges women and girls face in developing countries and how to sustainably address them.
