The Girls’ Festival provided a platform for partners to share their interventions, good practices and successes emerging from their work on gender equality. They exhibited products and services, discussing key topics like Gender Based Violence, Life skills, and male involvement in women empowerment.

Speaking at the Festival, Humphrey Nabimanya, the Founder & Team Leader of RAHU, highlighted the positive strides that have been made towards women and girl empowerment and called for continued championing of gender equality.

“Our hope for this Girls’ Festival, is that it will stimulate the much needed discussion on gender issues. This Girl Fest should serve as a reminder that we need to take a holistic approach to Women and Girl empowerment, including preventing violence against women and girls, protecting their sexual and reproductive health rights, improving girls’ access to education, and enabling women to participate in political processes.” Nabimanya said.
