ICRW East Africa Initiative

For more than 30 years, ICRW has worked extensively in Africa to understand and promote women’s roles in social and economic development. We have collaborated with numerous local and regional partners to economically empower women, improve their health, reduce the spread of HIV and AIDS and protect women from violence. With ongoing project sites in Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda, we are committed to supporting gender-equitable development throughout the continent.

Today, ICRW is establishing a formal presence in the region with the launch of our East Africa Regional Office, which aims to build local capacity to conduct rigorous research, disseminate state-of-the-art resource materials and promote evidence-based advocacy. Through this effort, we plan to establish a regional platform for dialogue on gender and development.

It wasn’t yet noon, but a group of women had already gathered under the shade of a giant Jacaranda tree next to the clinic. Its purple blossoms scattered in the parched, red earth were the only color in a landscape aching for the rainy season to begin. Just a few feet away from the clinic, an unremarkable ceramic monument the shape of a small skateboard ramp baked in the sun. One of the land rights paralegals I met with that day in early March explained that it marked a mass grave – one of many strewn across Uganda’s Luwero District.
