While Uganda embedded women’s rights in their 1996 constitution, gender-based violence (GBV) is still prevalent. Domestic and sexual violence is common, and child marriages and female circumcision are practiced to this day, mostly in the Karamoja region. Cultural and religious views on male-female relationships play a major role in this. Together with our local partners, Mensen met een Missie works to combat GBV by engaging religious leaders, educating female circumcisers, and challenging gender norms. From 2020 onwards the programme includes actions specifically aimed at men and boys, to train them to become agents against GBV.
