FOWODE Young Women Leadership Mentoring Camp
The FOWODE Young Women Leadership Mentoring Camp 2018 is open for applications.
Forum for Women in Democracy (FOWODE) is a non-partisan women’s organization operating in Uganda with its head office in Kampala. FOWODE grew out of the women’s caucus of the 1994 – 1995 constituent assembly (CA) that debated and passed the 1995 constitution.
During the assembly, the women delegates used the caucus to increase their political influence, broaden the base for support of women’s issues and advocate for a gender-sensitive constitution in all aspects. The success of the women’s caucus paved the way for the formation of FOWODE as a nongovernmental organization to offer a platform for Ugandan women’s learning, networking, sharing experiences and advocating for gender equality and equality in the decision-making process.
The FOWODE Young Women Leadership Mentoring Camp is focused on mentoring and grooming young women in transformative leadership. FOWODE strongly believes that if women were empowered to participate at various political levels in the country, then the resulting policies, laws, plans, and budgets would favor and strengthen the women’s empowerment process in Uganda.
