"My experience in prison was really seeing. Seeing what happens, seeing what people go through, seeing these women get out and instead of being happy, they are crying all night, because they have no place to go to." - Irene Namwano, Director of Prison Fellowship International in Uganda and formerly incarcerated

In 2012, I visited women prisoners languishing away for years, often without a conviction, sometimes while caring for their children.

Thwarted by national policies, such as the Anti-Pornography Act and traditional customary laws that prohibit owning land or maintaining assets, women in Uganda are most vulnerable to poverty, disease, crime and violence.
