PURPOSE: A strengthened and enlightened society advocating for equal opportunities and self-reliance
AFODE was formed in 2006 by two retired teachers living with HIV/AIDS and who had survived domestic violence in order to bring the community together and raise awareness of the daily struggles for women’s rights. Their district, Kasese, is in an area with a Bakonzo tribe majority, but is comprised of over ten different tribes with different religions of Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, Bisaka (indigenous), Christianity (Anglicans, Catholics, Pentecostals, Seventh Day Adventists), Tabliqs, and non-believers. AFODE’s scope of work covers human rights and good governance, environmental conservation and management, and economic empowerment.
