Interests: Community / Customary Land Rights, Gender-based violence
I am a female Ugandan, aged 31 with a Bachelor's Degree in Law. I specifically have a passion for advocacy especially for women rights at the lowest community level. I have been program Manger for 3 years in Land and Equity Movement in Uganda. I head program at the regional level and the main purpose of this role is to ensure effective program design and implementation that has largely contributed to the enhanced quality and strategic interventions at the community level especially to improve the understanding of land rights and taking up protection measures for their land and ending violence against women. I participate in advocacy at regional level and link up with National platforms on issues concerning women's land rights and policy gaps. I have been directly handling land rights issues under customary tenure including ADR, land documentation and capacity building with focus on women's land rights and the need to end violence against women; including but not limited to land grabbing due to vulnerability, physical disabilities in Teso Sub region. I am looking forward to enhancing my leadership skills to enable me advocate better for land justice and the need to end violence against women and eventually secure their land rights under customary tenure
