Participatory action research with refugee women & girls to better prevent sexual exploitation & abuse - Uganda Results Report
Cover

This report shares findings from the first phase of Empowered Aid, a multi-year participatory action research project in Uganda and Lebanon. This report presents findings from Uganda around risks of sexual exploitation and abuse (SEA) in relation to food, WASH, shelter, and fuel & firewood, throughout the distribution process. It also analyses risk factors identified by women and girls, who the perpetrators are, how communities respond to SEA, and survivors’ access to response services.  

The study is based on ethnographic, participatory action research with women and girls living in Bidi Bidi and Imvepi refugee settlements in Uganda. The report concludes with targeted, action-oriented recommendations to make aid distributions safer for women and girls, based on women and girl’s own analysis and recommendations, and outlines next steps for the project, which includes piloting recommendations from the research.
