Women Empowerment Uganda Limited- WAGENET conducted cultural and religious dialogues to end harmful traditional practices, misconception and myths against women in Kamuli. The Mwalimu says “many Muslim men misuse the Moslem right of marrying four women, he says that the Quran accept four women if you equally take care of them” and as well other religious leader emphasized the respect and equal treatment of women in communities.
Dialogues were conducted basically to help the women to understand the basic concepts, principles and teachings of human rights and GBVs mitigation including the ways in which they are delivered to people in the communities.
