Welcome to the 5th edition of the she leads journal
During this reporting period, there was increased interaction with GYW from their communities and also continued partner engagements where GYW from GLS actively participated in a number of activities organized by other CSO partners. Furthermore GYW also actively initiated and organized advocacy events in their communities something which explains the impact of the program among GYW.
For example Catherine Nansamba, A GYW advocate organized the commemoration of the International Day of Girl child (IDG) in Entebbe (Lugonjo Community) and sought support from GLS .This was after attending the She Leads Leadership & Advocacy training conducted . The resolutions made during the discussion led to the formulation of the petition which was presented to the Entebbe Division B Local council leaders.
Increased skills in the use of social media advocacy by GYW was witnessed as 8 GYW opened up twitter accounts and actively engaged in advocacy engagements online. This has increased the number of GYW advocates that are actively using these channels to advocate for their rights.
Politically leaders at different levels from community to district level contributed to the She Leads advocacy agenda during 16 Day of Activism, community dialogues and advocacy meetings aimed at shifting negative social gender norms which they say have fueled gender inequalities and violence in communities and homes. This is envisaged in the different commitments made by them.
