“Even the country does not have enough money to facilitate many delegates” Mutuuzo added.

“You should benchmark well to help Women of Uganda improve their social economic standards to compete with men in developmental issues” she emphasized.

The 68th CSW is organized under the theme; “Accelerating the achievement of gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls by addressing poverty and strengthening institutions and financing with a gender perspective”.
