Good morning Pulse family, My name is Christine Achieno, a Ugandan- working with National Association for Women's Action in Development (NAWAD).

National Association for Women’s Action in Development (NAWAD) is a voluntary non-governmental women’s organization that was initiated by a group of women in 2009 and was legally registered in 2010 with the Ugandan NGO board (INDR83662539NB6). NAWAD is committed to promote a stable and peaceful society where women and girls access equal rights in the different spheres of life. The organization focuses on the family and the crucial role women play in their families, their communities and the development of Uganda as a nation. The main goal of the organization is to promote the rights of women and girls especially in relation to sustainable natural resource management and climate change of the environment and natural resources, social and economic right and governance, peace and security. 

While there are a number of efforts addressing the challenges that confront women and girls; NAWAD has developed a unique perspective through its focus on the family as a key institution for building sustainable communities with emphasis on inclusion of men as strategic allies for attainment of gender equality. NAWAD believes that stable and peaceful families create stable and peaceful communities.  NAWAD feels strongly that to promote equal participation in decision-making for women, women and men must both be involved in the process of securing equal opportunities.  The organization however, believes that “Putting Women at the Forefront” and encouraging men to work with them is the only way to develop stable families and communities and ensure that all Ugandans realize their full potential. NAWAD is committed to contributing to uplifting the status of women and girls in Uganda, with a focus on grassroots communities across the country.
