Texting to Inform, Intensify, and Inspire in Uganda to Transform Social Relations between men and women

  • In small hamlets of refugees in the bush, between 15 to 30 people, who by luck of chance had a single cell phone they received from the United Nations. The Kolo: WCCC facilitated a social relations program to transform the gender relations between men and women by texting three short lines a week, followed-up by visiting them after 3 weeks (it was hard to get there).  The program was great success, resulting in them rewriting their creed for the village with the women.
