Right now, Uganda is one of the most dangerous countries to be a woman, with 1 in 2 women reported to have experience violence in their life.
From a young age, women are taught that they’re valued less, that their place is in the home. Far too many girls drop out of school and put at greater risk of poverty, child marriage and gender-based violence.
But violence stops with us.
ActionAid is working with women like Florence, a survivor of violence herself, who is committed to ending the cycle of violence in her community.
Your donation could help ActionAid provide essential skills training so women can become independent, learn about their right to live free of violence and provide emergency shelters for women escaping violence.
Please make an urgent donation today, so we can put an end to the cycle of violence against women.
