Who We Are

Center for Domestic Violence Prevention (CEDOVIP) works with communities, institutions, civil society and the government, to promote the rights of women and girls so as to create safer, healthier, and happier relationships, homes and communities. The work aims to create change in the attitudes, behavior, and practices that perpetuate Violence Against Women and Girls (VAW/G) in Uganda.



To prevent violence against women by transforming underlying power imbalances between men and women and harmful social norms.


An equal and just world where women and girls are free from violence and the threat of violence

Our Goal

Women and girls are free from all forms of VAWG and from the threat of such violence

To accomplish our goal(s), CEDOVIP focuses on mobilizing communities to prevent and respond to VAW/G; strengthening prevention and response to VAW/G by civil society organizations, government, local institutions, and institutions of learning; and advocacy for better implementation of existing laws and policies, as well as for passage of new, more effective laws and policies
