Welcome to FOWODE Uganda

Forum for Women in Democracy [FOWODE] is a women's rights national non-partisan organisation which was established in 1995. FOWODE grew out of the Women's Caucus of the 1994-1995 Constituent Assembly which debated and passed the 1995 Constitution.

After the enactment of the Constitution, the Gender Working Group of the Caucus formed FOWODE with the aim of mobilising women to take advantage of the gender sensitive Constitution. FOWODE envisions a just and fair society where women and men equally participate in and benefit from decision making processes. FOWODE strongly believes that if women were empowered to participate at various political levels in the country, then the resulting policies, laws, plans and budgets would favour and strengthen the women's empowerment process in Uganda.Our strategic vision is "Women with voice, power and resources engage effectively in governance"
