Organisation Description

Raising Voices is a nonprofit organization based in Kampala, Uganda working toward the prevention of violence against women and children. Our work strives to influence the power dynamics shaping relationships between women and men, girls and boys by catalyzing social change in communities, rigorously studying and learning from the work we do, and sharing our experiences to shape the field.

Vision: Raising Voices envisions relationships, families, and communities where women and children’s voices are heard, their rights are respected, and they can live free of violence.

Mission: To prevent violence against women and children.

Values: At Raising Voices, we believe that our organizational capacity stems directly from the set of values and principles by which we live and carry out our daily work. What makes us unique is not defined solely by what we do, but by how and why we do it. Raising Voices undertakes all aspects of our work in a manner that embodies our core beliefs in feminism, human rights, accountability, respect and the dignity of all people. We also believe in the imperative of staying grounded in sound practice and relevant theory.
