Twerwaneho Listeners Club (TLC) is a non-governmental organization based in Fort Portal, in the Rwenzori Region of Western Uganda. TLC carries out human rights advocacy in various ways including weekly radio programs centered on human rights education, capacity building to enhance human rights defenders’ ability to defend and promote human rights in the region, civic education, the monitoring and documentation of human rights violations and the challenging of unlawful government actions in court.
