Case study stories West Line

Introduction

To continue with the good work started under the Socio-Economic Empowerment of Female Inmates in West Nile Project, a project which strictly catered to the rehabilitation and reintegration needs of women prison inmates, Advance Afrika received additional support from the European Union to implement a two-and-a-half-year action, the “Empowering Local Communities to Prevent Violence against Women and Children in West Nile” (ELVWC) project, with the objective of empowering women and children in Koboko and Arua districts to live peaceful and dignified lives as they enjoy their economic, social and cultural rights. The project was implemented in partnership with the Uganda Prisons Service and Partners in Community Transformation (PICOT).

The intervention had two overall outcomes: Oc1) Female (ex-)inmates have access to improved and impactful rehabilitation and reintegration services; Oc2) Community structures actively engage in changing attitudes, perceptions and practices regarding respect for women’s and children’s rights.
