The SAFE Program supports a core set of activities in two component areas: “Access to Justice” and “Peace and Reconciliation“. Grants are awarded under both of these components to support activities central to the SAFE Program’s objectives.
Program activities target twenty (20) districts: Amuru, Arua, Buliisa, Gulu, Hoima, Jinja, Kibaale, Kiboga, Lira, Moroto, Mukono, Nebbi, Tororo, Soroti, and Wakiso.
Component I: Access to Justice
Component I focuses on improving the management of land related disputes and creating awareness of the land tenure and administration systems. The program works in all 20 target districts and will also channel resources to:
- Strengthen the capacity of formal institutions responsible for the management, administration and enforcement of land rights, and the resolution of land disputes;
- Improve linkages between formal and informal rights and institutions, and
- Increase the capacity of Uganda CSOs to facilitate access to justice and legal services, disseminate information, educate the public and monitor local government and traditional structures.
Component II: Peace and Reconciliation
Component II facilitates the prevention and transformation of emerging conflicts into peaceful outcomes while addressing old conflicts.
The work of Component II is undertaken in partnership with existing civil society networks and local governments to facilitate peace building and foster social inclusion.
Activities will target the initial 20 districts, while maintaining flexibility to respond to new conflicts in other parts of Uganda.
