2021 Annual Report- The Gender Tech Initiative Uganda

During the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, people were relying more on online technology.
Due to lockdowns and high-level restrictions, young women spent more time at home and were not able to see friends and family in person.

This made keeping in touch online extra important. While this comes along with endless benefits, many young women and girls were exposed to online violence like cyberbullying or sexting issues that put their mental health and well-being at risk.
