Making Communities Safer in Uganda

13:33 Dec 5 2012 Mbuya, Uganda

Uganda Community Based Association for Women and Children's Welfare celebrated both International Day of Disaster Reduction and International Rural Women's Day. Their collective celebration brought together local police and city authorities. More than 50 women from three communities took part in DRR awareness activities and workshops which included a community wide clean up and sanitation tour. During the clean up community members from Mbuya unblocked drains and cleaned pit latrines. Local police also participated and learned about the many initiatives grassroots women have spearheaded in their communities. The event not only raised awareness, but opened up new opportunities for partnership and collaboration.
