I am a male aged 44 years. I am a Ugandan by citizenship. After my High School I joined Law Development Center for a Diploma In law and later Busoga University. I now possess my first degree in Law. I am one of the founding Directors of Top Mothers Organization, a woman non government organization in Uganda. We are inspired by the plight of single mothers in the country. I am the coordinator of all the organization activities, where among others, advocacy for the rights of women is key. By joining this network, we anticipate experience sharing and learning lessons relevant to advancing the rights of women in our situation. We want to widen our knowledge and expertise on the best practices that can be applied to empower women with knowledge of law of the land. There are gross human rights abuses in the country across board; may be by joining the network, we may enrich our advocacy and awareness strategies for better results. We accordingly anticipate capacity enhancement through, material sharing, trainings, mentoring, coaching, etc. We also have big hope that this network may facilitate our access to better sources of necessary organization resources including, among others, human and financial resources. Furthermore, we believe that we need to work better in those areas if we are to be effective in executing our mandate, and thus, may be through the network, this may be achieved.
