1. LOOKING FOR RESEARCH AND PARTNERS FOR WORK ON REFUGEE WOMEN ISSUES IN UGANDA – Dear all, We are the Women for Dignity and Development Foundation (WODIDEF), based in Kampala, Uganda in East Africa. WODIDEF was founded in 2006 by 7 women and 3 men who were very concerned about the degradation of the social, economic and cultural situaton of refugee women within refugee settlements in Uganda, including rape, sex slavery, trafficking, domestic violence, defilement, sexual assault, the upsurge of HIV/AIDS contamination as a consequence of rape and other gender based violence. Our mission is to improve the lives of refugee women and girls by using intermational human rights standards to advocate for them. We seek to empower refugee women and girls through research, education, training, advocacy, and entrepreneurship so that women refugees play an active role in the community in whch they feel marginalised. We are looking for parteners or we would welcome everybody who can make his/her research on refugee women’s situation available. Kind regards, Ms Patricia Kalambayi, Executive director, Uganda-Kampala, Nsambya West, Keevina road, Makindye division, Tel. +256-755372-107, e-mail.
