Women Leaders Arise

Out of the Shadows

Women leaders arise

Increasing the visibility and influence of women grassroots leaders in Sexual and Gender-based Violence (SGBV) decision-making processes in Uganda.

The project has three main goals: 1) to address the ‘invisibility’ of the women leaders by bringing their work directly to the attention of Ugandan policymakers, other influential groups and the public; 2) to create a platform for women leaders to influence decision-makers and decision-making processes; and 3) to develop the capacity of the women leaders to advocate for themselves in a public setting without fear or shame on issues that concern them.

Strong Capable Fearless

Tallawah means


We work to bring women leaders in the Global South together to leverage our individual and collective strength. We connect women leaders of community-based organizations with others in their region and with resources around the globe.


Women leaders need more than passion to run their organizations. We support, mentor and train them in leadership and managerial skills, effective governance, business strategies, as well as online marketing and fundraising.


Women leaders have much to say and they want to speak for themselves in their own voices. We help them to access platforms for lobbying and sustained advocacy to ensure that they are seen and their perspectives heard.

Women Leaders Are Rising!

During the Covid-19 global pandemic, women leaders of grassroots and survivor organizations were critical first responders to increased cases of sexual and domestic violence; but they are least likely to have the resources and support they need to lead effectively. One woman leader can go far alone, but if supported, she can go so much further! Tallawah works to connect, empower and mentor women leaders of survivor and community-based organizations and movements. We help women leaders to rise and stand together so that they can be more effective.
