[ADVOCACY] SERI hosts the Shelter & Settlements Alternative Uganda for an exchange visit (28 February 2024).

SSA Uganda visitFrom 19 to 21 February 2024, SERI hosted the Shelter & Settlements Alternative: Uganda Human Settlements Network (SSA) for an exchange visit on gender equality in land and housing.  

The exchange visit allowed SERI and SSA to share insights and experiences regarding their efforts in advancing access to land and housing, with a specific focus on gender equality. The exchange facilitated networking opportunities and cultural exchanges between the two organizations and included learning from SERI's operation strategies.

On the first day of the exchange program, SSA was introduced to SERI’s research and advocacy and engaged with SERI’s senior leadership. On the second day, SSA observed litigation consultations and gained firsthand experience in SERI's client engagement processes, further enhancing their understanding of operational strategies. The day concluded with SSA's exploration of spatial inequality through a guided tour of Johannesburg. On the last day of the exchange, SSA joined ICF’s inner-city residents for a consultation on women’s challenges in Johannesburg's inner-city buildings.

This exchange formed part of the Women’s Spaces project at SERI which focuses on women’s rights to land and housing in sub-Saharan Africa. The project is supported by Rooftops Canada.
