Oxfam envisions Uganda free of extreme inequality and injustice; a society where citizens and particularly women across all age groups claim and exercise their rights and responsibilities and are able to influence decisions that affect their lives.
Our one country program is hinged on three thematic goals which aim to promote women’s rights, good governance and accountability, resilient livelihoods, as well as enhance preparedness, reduce vulnerability to disaster and ensure an effective response to humanitarian crises.
The realisation of these goals requires that we work in partnership and alliance with others from the local to global levels. Importantly it calls for giving power to the people to increase their voice in influencing the decisions that affect them.
When considering participants, targets and beneficiaries of our programmes, a conscious effort is placed on women and girls as their rights are consistently compromised. Our conviction is that promotion of women’s rights is key to addressing drivers of poverty and inequality.
