Bus station – Kampala

The Visibility of Women Workers strand of the project has got off with a flying start this week with the Africa Regional Women’s Workshop, being held in Kampala, Uganda. Teams of women activists from Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda are working together to learn mapping techniques in informal transport workplaces, focusing on informal women workers.

Most of the participants are informal workers themselves. In addition to sharing their own experiences, they have been out and about in one of Kampala’s busiest bus stations, interviewing women workers, investigating their livelihoods, occupations, issues, and levels of organisation.
