Our African Sector Coordinator, Sister Therese Tindirugamu, says, “The program is aimed at conscientizing the people of Uganda towards women’s rights and covers topics including female genital mutilation, and women’s inheritance and ownership of land and property. Other women’s issues addressed are gender-based violence and maternal health care.
