Join the Campaign
“Across the planet, the majority of front line workers, health care workers, home care workers, domestic workers, and farmworkers are women. Like the Earth, they are the least valued and protected.
We must RISE to value, protect and uplift those who are doing essential work. We must RISE for the Earth, which is the most essential to all life”(OBR,2021).
MEMPROW Uganda joins in on the #One_Billion_Rising_Campaign calling on everyone in Uganda and around the world to RISE in honor and celebration of our WOMEN Workers, and to create and grow RISING GARDENS.
We will be sharing stories of our WOMEN CHAMPIONS from the local communities we work with on our social media every Tuesday and Friday through out the month of March.
“Rising Gardens are a defiant creative call for revival, restoration and transformation. They are, in many ways, a compassionate call for justice – because one of the greatest injustices of our time has been the destruction and eradication of Mother Earth, parallel to the ongoing and escalating gender-based violence. We cannot keep the ongoing extraction of women’s labour and earth’s produce, with no gratitude to both. We must honor and protect the Earth and women in order for any future life to exist” (OBR,2021).
To make a garden grow is to love.
To keep a community alive is to love.
Create and grow gardens.
Dance in them.
Raise the Vibration with your hands and bodies.
RISE FOR WOMEN AND MOTHER EARTH
