CEWIGO is a women’s rights national non-partisan organization and was established in 2006. CEWIGO was founded out a desire to make women’s participation in politics and governance go beyond numbers, and transform decisions and service delivery for the benefit of the majority women of Uganda.
A study undertaken by CEWIGO in her days showed that women in Parliament had little influence on legislation and policy formulation when it came to health, education and family law. Since then, CEWIGO’s interventions have focused on capacity enhancement for women in political leadership positions including women in lower local councils. This effort contributes to gender equality and women’s empowerment.
CEWIGO envisions a world in which society values and cherishes good governance.
