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.

What people say about WOUGNET

Women in low- and middle-income countries are, on average, 10% less likely to own a mobile phone than men, which translates into 184 million fewer women owning mobile phones (GSMA, 2018)
Even when women own mobile phones, there is a significant gender gap in usage, particularly for more transformational services, such as mobile internet
National broadband plans to guide the policy reforms needed to achieve universal access have never been developed or are badly outdated in 41% of countries (A4AI,2017)
