Request for Expression of Interest to develop a Documentary on Women’s Participation in Peace Building in Uganda.

1.0 Background

Women’s International Peace Centre, formerly Isis-WICCE, is a feminist organization founded in 1974 and based in Kampala, Uganda. Our mission is to ignite women’s leadership, amplify their voices and deepen their impact in recreating peace. Our WEAVE model intersects research (on women’s specific experiences and needs), evidence-based advocacy (to influence national, regional and international policy and practice), holistic healing (to enable women’s wellbeing and participation in peace processes), skills and movement building (to equip WHRDs with necessary skills, build networks and facilitate the exchange of strategies to advance women’s leadership for peace.

The Peace Centre works in Africa, Asia, at a regional and global level with women war survivors, women human rights defenders, and women’s rights organizations to amplify women’s voices and advocate for policies and programs tackling the impact of conflict on women and communities using our WEAVE model.

The Peace Centre is running a project promoting women’s effective participation in peacebuilding in Uganda from April 2021 to January 2022. This project seeks to promote women’s participation in conflict prevention and peacebuilding in post-conflict Northern Uganda and humanitarian settings of Kotido, Yumbe and Adjumani.
