6th Annual Drama Festival October 4, 2013

Kikopo Pa Mon Gulu: Creating a Voice for Women in Gulu

To address the issue of gender inequality, violence, land rights, food security, HIV/AIDS and other issues facing women in northern Uganda, Women’s Global Empowerment Fund hosts a yearly drama festival, Kikopo Pa Mon.  Women in our Credit Plus program create original plays highlighting their stories using music, drama, and dance.

Performances focus on the issues of inequality, education inequity, HIV and violence. This year the topic, chosen by participants, is resiliency, peace and security.  Women used the unique opportunity as a vehicle to directly speak to men and community leaders who were in attendance. Because the issues addressed are sensitive and can be difficult to discuss directly, using music, dance and drama offers a different way to communicate and provides many other benefits, including maintaining and celebrating cultural traditions.
