Women of Uganda Network


Women of Uganda Network (WOUGNET) is a Network of over 100 Organisations the majority of which are in urban areas, but some are in rural areas with poor access to the Internet. Founded in May 2000, we are dedicated to aiding women and women's organizations in the use of information and communication technologies, focusing on use of mobile phones, e-mail and the web, as well as the integration of "traditional means" such as radio, video and print in a way that enables wider outreach.
