With support from Natural Resource Governance Institute (NRGI), BIRUDO has this July/August 2017 has been focusing exclusively on strengthening capacity of women participation in oil and gas development through informing women of their land rights, and on documenting how women have been affected by land transactions related to the construction of oil infrastructure. The program is focused on the five villages closest to the area in which the Central Processing Facility (CPF) is planned, namely Kisomere, Kasenyi, Uduuk II, Kibambura, and Kirama. BIRUDO will then take forward the women’s concerns and complaints to both sub-county representatives, and the district administration.

very great work birudo team, majority of the community members almost 98% with 60% women and 39% males are marginalized in their capacity to actively advocate and participate in quality and effective engagement in developmental activities (for social economic transformation and development) that benefit them and the community at large. they are being cheated and played and turned around by our politicians and cadres to remove and swindle what they should earn or benefit from. its the duty of all Ugandans to take it a priority that our people benefit from the projects, natural resources and are paid for their assets, services and labor offered .
