Help end violence against women in Uganda

Donate Now!

In Uganda, more than half of all women experience physical or sexual violence in their lifetime.

Women have no right to inherit land, they’re often excluded from decision making, and left without the ability to earn an income to support themselves or their children – making it difficult to be independent and leave a violent partner.

Will you make an urgent donation and help end violence against women?

Women and girls are speaking up and demanding change. ActionAid is supporting women in countries like Uganda to no longer accept violence as a ‘normal’ part of life.

What we are doing

ActionAid Women Protection Centres are providing women with both immediate and long term solutions to combat violence.

Short term

  • A safe place to stay, where women can access protection from violent situations.
  • Immediate support and counselling to help women heal from trauma, and be empowered to move forward with their lives.
  • Legal support to help women access justice against perpetrators.

Long term

  • Train women on new skills, which can help them earn their own income and become financially independent.
  • Support women with loan schemes helping them own their own businesses.
  • Give survivors the confidence to report incidences of violence to the police through public education.
