Catcalling, molestation, sexual assault, lewd remarks, verbal attacks; If you are a woman in Kampala, Uganda, East Africa, Africa, the world, you have likely experienced these and worse. These are our bodies, they aren’t decorations. We deserve to feel safe while while taking up space.
As part of the global campaign: 16 Days against Gender Based Violence FitcliqueAfrica is organizing five FREE personal safety camps. They are targeted at women from all walks of life from students to sex workers, young corporates to queer women. Our Partners are the US Mission to Uganda and 40 Days Over 40 Smiles.
You’re invited to the first camp on Saturday (28th Nov) at the National Theater Gardens from 2pm to 5pm. To book your spot, confirm attendance over here and then send your full name to 0701406773. Each camp has a cap of 50 women so first come, first serve.
