The Women’s Rights Initiative (WORI) is an action-oriented organisation working with women and youth in the Eastern Region of Uganda. Through programmes in human and women’s rights awareness, advocacy, and education we promote leadership development, sexual and reproductive rights, and economic empowerment.,
WORI was founded in 2007 by three young Ugandan women to respond to the epidemic of poverty and denial of women’s rights in Uganda.
Our main aim is to to support their health and personal development. WORI has a special interest in the plight of women and youth, as they are the most susceptible to vulnerability in society physically, economically and psychologically.
