LOSCO paid a courtesy visit to the Kigezi Regional Office of the Uganda Human Rights Commission (UHRC).
This is a new office still being established under the leadership of Ms. TWEMBI B. THEOPISTA the Principal Human Rights Officer.
This was in a bid to identify the areas of collaboration and promotion of Human Rights in Kigezi Region.
The Issues Identified are the unresolved cases of Teenage Pregnancies, rising cases of Domestic and Gender based violence, Land rights violations among other issues that have increased the loss of lives.
The Most Urgent intervention in curbing these issues is Mindset Change using a Gender Intersectionality lens targeting both Men and Women and also the Youths, PWDs, the Poor, which can be done through Community Sensitisation, Duty bearers Human Rights Education and consistent follow up on the legal Processes which can be done in close collaboration with the boundary stakeholders leaving on one behind.
