Description:

Northern Uganda has suffered from chronic food shortages and high levels of poverty, political insecurity and adverse environmental conditions. Women can be particularly disadvantaged, constrained by a lack of access to and control over resources, patriarchal exploitation, and harmful social norms. Oxfam implemented a series of interventions in Karamoja to support women’s livelihoods and promote their socio-economic empowerment and rights. One of these was the Piloting Gender Sensitive Livelihoods in Karamoja (PGSLK) project.

This report assesses two evaluations of the project: a quantitative impact evaluation, which found that its economic empowerment activities in Kotido had a positive impact for women overall; and a qualitative follow-up study designed to dig deeper into the findings about care work as part of Oxfam’s Women’s Economic Empowerment and Care initiative (WE-Care). This report discusses the implications of its results for addressing care in women’s empowerment (particularly in post-conflict settings in Uganda and beyond), and reflects critically on the process of the evaluation itself and how it might be improved.
