[1] Gender Action Learning System (GALS) developed and rolled out by Oxfam Novib with support from IFAD since 2008 is a community-led “household methodology/approach” that aims to give women and men more control over their personal, household, community and organizational development. It comprises role playing and visual tools to help farmers plan their lives and sustainable livelihoods. GALS is most often used to support farmers in more collaborative intra-household decision-making, and generally for development purposes (CGIAR, 2019). GALS review in 2011 co-financed by GIZ in the coffee value chain in Uganda demonstrated conclusively that the GALS has been remarkably powerful in unseating powerful cultural norms that have existed for generations. Remarkable life changes related to the division of both domestic and farm work, household decision-making, control and access to assets and services and decreases in alcohol abuse and violence were indicated (Oxfam Novib, 2014).

Activity 1.3.4: Expand the public advocacy on women’s agronomic and economic empowerment through community radio, brochures, and national events on Nane Nane (Farmers’ Day) and International Women’s Day with visibility for KOICA and the joint programme.

ii. Promote Women’s land rights and overall village land registration process in close consultation with the Land Intervention Responsible Party (Government Entity) and UN Women in line with the information in the broachers developed by the Land Responsible Party;
iii. Develop key messages to promote women’s right in agricultural production, in this case in the Horticulture and Sunflower value chains and engage and collaborate with other project implementing partners Ikungi DC, TAHA and Farm Africa to improve gender-mainstreaming approaches/techniques to encourage inclusivity in their undertakings;
iv. Prepare messages on prevention and response to Gender-based Violence including Police Gender and Children’s Desk in Ikungi District and Singida Region that UN Women is supporting through the Police Force in this project;
v. Develop key campaign messages extracted from the community GALS engagement including benefits and exemplary stories of collaborative intra-household planning and decision-making and shared responsibilities of domestic and care work, and its benefits for family livelihoods, and positive awareness and behavioral change related to gender norms.
