Working with Communities
PEMU carries out a range of community engagement activities with deprived communities and individuals. The key aim of our work with communities is to ensure that we eradicate poverty and the voice of communities and individuals experiencing poverty are heard by policy makers and service providers and have an input into building a better Uganda.
We believe it is a fundamental right for people who are affected by poverty to be involved in the decisions that affect their lives, and that more open and transparent processes are central to creating a more participative democracy.
We primarily work with women and teenage mothers with experience of poverty. If you are interested in getting involved in our work with communities then please contact us.
