Internship Year:

I worked with the violence against women department on the Gender Based Violence Prevention Network and their annual project, the 16 Days of Activism. I developed an Action and Advocacy Kit to be distributed to Network members throughout the Horn, East, and Southern Africa. This Kit included a press release, posters, ribbons, pledge card, a community organizing seminar, and a global text message campaign. I also advertised the campaign and the kit though various civil society and networking organizations and the Ministry of Gender. This kit was distributed to 25 organizations outside of Uganda, numerous more inside Uganda, and will be available on the website. I also attended meetings of the community activists, community dramas, and meetings with larger organizations such as UNFPA and the Ministry of Gender.
