Who We Are
Women and Girls Rights Advocacy Uganda (WAGRAU) is a community based non profit organization that works towards the respect, promotion and protection of women and girls rights and dignity. Established in 2017 but fully registered in 2019, WAGRAU works on dismantling patriarchy in all forms; demystifying discrimination and abusive gender concepts against women that have been made normal by society.
WAGRAU is led by a female, Ugandan team of professionals based in the TESO Region of UGANDA, East Africa. We strongly believe WOMEN have the wisdom and capacity to determine their needs and aspirations, and are able to find the most effective ways of both resolving urgent situations as well as developing long term solutions that will impact generations to come.
To promote Women and Girls rights, equality, respect and dignity through economic empowerment of women and girls, community education, strategic partnership and constructive engagement of rights owners with duty bearers.
