Welcome to Her Story Foundation
We Inform To Transform

Her Story Foundation Uganda is a non-for-profit organization that advocates for gender equity, equal representation of women in the media and women empowerment.

It creates innovative content for development while advocating for inclusion, equity and diversity by providing a safe environment for women to share their plight and experiences to motivate others without expecting judgments.

We use storytelling to instill empowering and inspiring messages to fellow women and girls.

Our vision as an agent of change is to see more women and girls come out to issues that matter to them the most and freely express without fear of prejudice and take this as a cornerstone to raising their self-esteem

About Her Story Foundation

Her Story Foundation Uganda has been in existence since 2019. Female under representation in the media remains a big challenge towards gender equality. Women identities often disappear when referring to them. The continued disappearance of women’s names and identity has put a serious mark towards women representation in the media
