July 28, 2022       ,

NAPE and Oil Refinery Affected Residents Association (ORRA) have embarked on carrying out joint activities aimed at amplifying voices of oil host communities.

The partnership between the two CSOs was kick-started with a capacity building training on community mobilisation with a specific target of PWDs, youth, women and persons living with HIV. 

This activity was organised with support from UNWOMEN, Women’s Peace and Humanitarian Fund (WPHF) in recognising the contributions and promoting peer learning between CSOs working on Women, youth, peace and humanitarian issues.

Ms. Joan Akiiza, the NAPE Legal Officer who organised the training said that a series of other activities were planned all aimed at ensuring that the voices of the grassroots communities especially those that are usually marginalised such and women and youth are heard in oil debates and their rights respected.
