ACORD in Uganda works in partnership with the poor and the marginalised to change conditions undermining social justice through participatory people-centred practical work, research and advocacy. To this end ACORD is implementing programmes focusing on resilient livelihoods, rights and responsibilities promotion, and peace building and conflict resolution. ACORD also provide life-saving support to Burundian, Congolese, and South Sudanese refugees in Uganda.
The history of women's rights actors' engagement with statecraft has over the years gone through various waves and as a result varied strategies have been adopted. One of the most common approaches across the continent has been to target the legal and policy environment of the state as a means through which the rights of women can be entrenched. The rationale to such an approach was that that a reform oriented approach that worked to incrementally change the system was favoured rather than one that radically overhauled it.
