In 2020, KWID partnered with the Women of Uganda Network (WOUGNET) to implement the Civil Society in Uganda Digital Support (CUDS) Programme.
This programme was funded by UN Women under Women Peace and Humanitarian Fund (WPHF) COVID-19 Emergency Response. The programme was intended to promote a conducive digital environment through training and equipping staff with knowledge, skills and competence in the use of digital technology and tools, enhancing rapid localization of COVID 19 data to reducing misinformation.
It strengthened KWID’s logistical capacity by providing a laptop enabled with video conference equipment to boost our ability to strategize and effectively work online. WOUGNET also provided digital and computer skills training to KWID staff to emphasize online meetings.
