Generation Gender Uganda has embraced exchange learning to share best practices, strengthen partnerships, and create synergies in the fight for gender justice, unpaid care work, and young people’s access to civic spaces. They have used collective learning with and for young people to advocate for a gender-just and violence-free society.
From September 19 to September 23, a delegation from Generation Gender South Africa led by Sonke Gender Justice visited the country for an exchange and learning visit. They visited the Reach A Hand office and met the Uganda implementation team for #GenerationGender.
The SA team was taken to the communities as part of the visit, where we held community dialogues, outreaches, a capacity-building session on gender justice and SRHR with the district youth council, and monitoring field visits.
The team discussed gender justice and the causes of GBV in society during the community dialogues. We visited Adjumani communities, reaching out to the most remote areas to spark conversations about achieving gender justice through community participation.
At the community dialogues, we unpacked gender justice and the causes of GBV in society. We sauntered communities in Adjumani; reaching out to the furthest of communities to ignite conversations to create gender justice through community involvement.
Through the many engagements, both teams shared best practices, experiences, knowledge, and ideas as well as possible areas of collaboration.
