Women’s Empowerment in Uganda: Impact evaluation of the project ‘Piloting gender sensitive livelihoods in Karamoja’
This evaluation is presented as part of the Effectiveness Review Series 2014/15, selected for review under the women’s empowerment thematic area. This report documents the findings of a quasi-experimental impact evaluation carried out in August 2014 that sought to assess the impact of the activities of the project ‘Piloting gender sensitive livelihoods in Karamoja’.
The project intended to achieve two main objectives through the implementation of two distinct interventions. The first objective was to improve the livelihoods of poor women through the support of enterprises. The second objective was to reduce violence against women by promoting awareness and influencing attitude and behavioural change.
