Such capacity building sessions are carried out to provide a platform for shared learning and networking. Participants are enabled to understand their roles as people’s representatives, and engaged one another constructively through experience sharing, while simultaneously learning new information and strategies to address the challenges they are confronted with as female leaders.
Information and knowledge sharing are key areas of work for ACFODE. As a leading national women’s organisation in Uganda, ACFODE has accumulated a significant knowledge capital based on its interventions. This knowledge is considered a public good, which development practitioners from around the globe have access to, use and debate about.
ACFODE participates in events that bring together like-minded individuals, NGOs, and key line government ministries to create, discuss and network for the promotion of women’s issues. I n view of that, the organisation establishes new strategic relationships and partnerships which are used as invaluable sources of information and support in its interventions.
The majority of law enforcers who are supposed to promote justice in homes have challenges in interpreting and implementing respective legal frameworks. To address such gaps, ACFODE conducts a series of training for Local Council 1 (LC) chairpersons on relevant legal framework such as the Domestic Violence Act (DVA).
