Women’s Global Empowerment Fund

The civil war in Uganda that began in the 1980s was a time of suffering and despair for the people of northern Uganda. Hundreds of people were killed during the rebellion against the Ugandan government, and an estimated 400,000 were left homeless. While very little is known about the lives of men impacted by the war, there is even less knowledge about the plight of women living in this war-torn country. Over the past few years, several women activists and support groups have been working to end the violence and resolve the issues faced by women in northern Uganda. Northern Uganda has a growing and dynamic network of grassroots and national organizations that include volunteers, activists, humanitarian relief workers, community leaders, and others.
