Economic Empowerment

Having noted the critical role that economic empowerment plays in enhancing the role and status of women in society, ACFODE shall initiate and integrate economic empowerment activities in all her programs. Such programmes will target women and girls towards enhancing their status, role and participation in political, as well as socio-economic programs. ACFODE will also advocate for implementation of national labour laws that enhance job security for women especially in the Private and NGO Sectors. ACFODE has also noted the emerging gender related challenges among the growing influx of refugees in the country. These planned interventions will therefore include refugees as a critical target group for economic empowerment programs with a focus on building women’s capacity in small scale group saving & investment ventures.

To empower women and influence legislation and policy for gender equality in Uganda.
