Property Rights and Gender: A Training Toolkit

Property rights economically empower women by creating opportunities for earning income, securing their place in the community and ensuring their livelihoods. This toolkit seeks to strengthen understanding of property rights for women and men as equal citizens. In Uganda, where this toolkit was piloted, women often are not treated as equal citizens, and the toolkit addresses what rights women have, how to communicate women’s rights and the issues preventing women from exercising their rights.

The overarching goals of the training are to:

  • Increase knowledge of legal rights to property in Uganda
  • Understand and recognize women’s and men’s equality before Ugandan law
  • Allow women and men to exercise and protect their own property rights while respecting others’ rights

The toolkit has five modules:

  • Rights and Gender in Uganda
  • Land Law and Gender
  • Property Rights in Marriage and Family
  • Inheritance Law, Wills and Women
  • Monitoring Skills for the Community Rights Worker
