81% of refugees living in Uganda are women & children.
Refugee women disproportionately absorb the burdens of providing for household needs as primary caretakers. At YARID, we prioritize the care of our mothers, grandmothers, sisters, and aunties. As a refugee-led organization with 50% women on staff, we center women as the creators of their own futures.
