Who We Are….

The Centre for Women in Governance is a National-level Non-governmental Organization (NGO) established in 2006 with a vision of: “A society in which women and men are equitably participating and benefiting from good governance”.

Our mission is: “To mobilize women and build their capacity to influence governance at all levels and to increase awareness that where women and men share equally in the generation and maintenance of good governance, the benefits accrue to all society”.

What We Do

Women’s Leadership Development

CEWIGO focuses on mobilizing young women including those with leadership potential and building their capacities to understand better how governance and electoral systems work. It also focuses on building their political and social base to clout how they manage successful campaigns and make use of their social and political networks to mobilize resources.

Women’s Rights Advocacy

CEWIGO helps to build and sustain women’s leadership to articulate & claim their right to peace and personal security. It also monitors the level of implementation of selected commitments Uganda has made at national, regional and global levels for women’s advancement and empowerment. Respect of women’s right to peace and security is a fundamental human right that is absolutely essential for promoting and achieving good governance in Uganda.

Community & Citizens Empowerment

CEWIGO aims to empower communities, women, men, boys and girls with knowledge and skills. These will influence public behavior and attitude change that support good governance, and women’s participation in leadership and decision making. Citizens will be able to know their rights and constitutional responsibilities, also ensure that the leaders remain accountable and committed to the delivery of quality social services.
