|NAPE Offices in Kampala, Uganda. The organization also has various grassroots projects throughout the country.|
More information about some of NAPE’s current work can be found on at the NAPE BLOG or NAPE WEBSITE.
NAPE staff are smart, committed and realistic. As they explain, “We monitor government actions, conduct research, provide educational materials, develop science-based strategies, organize affected communities, make common cause with other civil society organisations and international organisations, and engage government officials at all levels. It is an ambitious undertaking, but as lifelong Ugandans we cannot ignore what is happening to our precious homeland. While we stand ready to work with anyone committed to the public interest, we also will not allow powerful political or special interests to intimidate or silence us. We have done so since our founding in 1997.”
In future postings I’ll explore some of the specific projects that NAPE is now engaged.
