At the event, Mrs. Kiyinji asked Kalinabili Secondary School girls to build self-esteem as the only way to cover any form of abuses from their male counterparts in leadership.

“I encourage you girls here present to always stand for something if you want to become someone; if you don’t stand for anything, you will fall for anything.”

CEWIGO assistant programs officer Women Rights Advocacy, Noreen Nampewo advised girls to avoid early sexual intercourse which might hamper their academic careers.

“As a leader, you should always learn to do things at the right time, that’s when you will receive substantive results and will build trust before your voters,” Nampewo advised.



The organization also announced an essay writing competition were girls between 15 to 24 years will compete in writing essays under the topic: “Women and politics; what is women’s value addition to political participation.”

The essays will be judged on clarity, originality and the scholar’s contribution to the understanding of the topic were three lucky winners will win cash prices, T-shirts and several other gifts.
