A sense of excitement, gratitude and joy was all over when a-team of 46 peer counsellors and group chairpersons from 5 Districts, mate at Gulu Women’s Resource Center to share the achievements of the year and also reflect, learn and plan for a big coming year 2018. WGEF values the meaningful participation of our grassroots structure headed by a team of powerful peer counselors. Meaning taking the lead in planning and implementation of our programs offers them the true vehicle for empowerment. true empowerment comes from women’s ability to participate and having a voice.
When I joined the team of peer counsellors I discovered my voice both from home, and my community, having a voice is the most important feeling in my life
