Women are a major driving factor in the development of CWM, but in many societies Women have been referred to be a marginalized group (also in Uganda). For this reason, CWM has offered a separate desk for Women to enable them to speak freely about their challenges.
This desk offers:
1. An opportunity for them to share about their experiences
2. Women Empowerment in the society
3. Counseling of Members
4. Encouragement to Women to participate leadership
5. Dialogue on Cultural values that impact on them
6. Identification of projects which are viable for Women
7. Linkage for young girls with the Movement
In many cases Women´s Desks have their own projects, e.g. ointments or Accessories, which get more and more popular.
