The Nyonga Skilling Initiative is a new 2 year project and is part of WORI’s Human Rights Program. It is based at Nyonga Women’s Shelter, Uganda’s largest shelter for GBV survivors in the Eastern region, serving Jinja district and the sub-counties of Buwenge, Buyengo and Mafubira. The shelter provides services and temporary residence to women and children fleeing gender-based violence as well as reaching out to and supporting non-residents to rehabilitate and rebuild.

Every other woman aged 15 or over has been subjected to physical violence, either from a partner or another person in society. In Busoga region, 26% of women and 9% of men have suffered sexual violence. In order to combat this violence and raise awareness so that future generations are equipped to instigate change, this project also cooperates with primary schools in the region to ensure young people are aware of how to recognize, report and end violence as they grow up.
