Amplifying WOMEN's Voices
"At least I was able to speak out what I have been holding within me for 9 years"!
To address the issues of inequality, reproductive health care, gender based Violence, HIV/ AIDS and other issues facing women in northern Uganda, we hosted our 9th annual Amplifying Women's Voices drama competition, Kikopo Pa Mon on 8th October October 2016. Women in our program created original plays highlighting their stories using music, drama, and dance and monologues under the theme: Access to Reproductive Health Care is My Right!
This platform provided a stigma free environment for women to speak about topical issues that affect their lives, families and the community in which they live. The event brought together 500 women, civic, cultural and religious leaders and school going children from Gulu, Amuru, Nwoya and Omoro Districts. Women used the voices to challenge social cultural imbalances presented through Music, Dance, Drama, monologues
