The Angie Brooks International Centre (ABIC) for Women’s Empowerment, Leadership Development, International Peace and Security, the initiator of the Women’s Situation Room (WSR) has once again been vigorously involved with replicating the initiative in Uganda. ABIC was invited through its Establishment Coordinator, Cllr. Yvette Chesson-Wureh to work with the women of Uganda to replicate the WSR, which sole purpose is to ensure peace before, during and after the electoral process and also get women to participate throughout the process. Cllr. Chesson-Wureh was instrumental in the successful replication of the WSR during the February 18, 2016 general elections in Uganda and has remained in the country mediating post elections dispute and undertaking other peacebuilding works along with the women of Uganda.
