Community engagement and empowerment

  • Community studies:
    Understanding community norms to address social justice focusing on social justice especially for Health, HIV and Gender has been prioritized. This is done through the analysis and response to community social and structural barriers, to open gates for access to justice by the most vulnerable and voiceless.
  • Community led social change:
    Community mobilization and engagement helps to map out community own resource persons and other opportunities that are exploited and capacitated with knowledge; skills; positive attitudes to take charge of their own development. Community members are empowered to identify, challenge and report rights abuses to the relevant duty bearers in a timely manner.
  • An average of 1200 GBV survivors supported annually:
    UGANET has been implementing the SASA model that has saved thousands of GBV survivors initially through 60 trained community activities who later coached over 300 households as Stop GBV agents. SASA is a creative methodology where transformation of behavior and attitude happen for consistent exposure to messages, dialogue that challenge abuse and excessive use of power. It addresses the mind, attitude, deep seated customs and beliefs; and overtime causes change in outlook and actions.
  • Community level mediations:
    Over 1000 victims of rights abuses have reclaimed their rights through 100 empowered community paralegals who arbitrate through mediations and support community justice structures (clan leaders, religious leaders, LCs) in human rights based approaches.
  • Hundreds of widows regain their succession and property rights.
    Through partnership with UN women, UNDP among others; a total of 50 eminent women also know as watchdogs have been empowered to sensitize; track and challenge women property rights abuses.
  • MARPs networking to fix gaps:
    Communities of prisoners, sex workers, PLHIV, widows, PWDs, Orphans, palliative care patients, victims of drug abuse and other marginalized persons have been linked to appropriate services and empowered to demand for their rights with in the law.
