Empowered Aid: Participatory action research with refugee women & girls to better prevent sexual exploitation & abuse | Uganda Country Report

This report shares findings from the first phase of Empowered Aid in Uganda around risks of sexual exploitation and abuse in relation to food, WASH, shelter, and fuel & firewood, throughout the distribution process. It is based on rigorous, longitudinal qualitative research with women and girls living in Bidi Bidi and Imvepi refugee settlements in Uganda. The report also summarises findings related to other types of distribution-related gender-based violence. It provides targeted, action-oriented recommendations to make aid distributions safer for women and girls, grounded in their own voices.

This research was conducted by the Global Women’s Institute of the George Washington University, in partnership with the International Rescue Committee in Uganda. This report was drafted by Alina Potts, Harriet Kolli, Elizabeth Hedge, and Chelsea Ullman.
