MIFUMI’s belief is that advocacy is a process, rather than an event. As such, advocacy is a continuous aspect of MIFUMI’s work at all levels of engagement. MIFUMI’s advocacy work has included grass roots interventions that have led to community by-laws, district level efforts that have resulted in referenda and local level resolutions and district ordinances; and ultimately national level issues that influence policy, practice and legislation.
MIFUMI’s advocacy activities have varied far and wide between and are adapted as the need arises.
MIFUMI has recently achieved a favourable ruling on the issue of bride price, which has been a core campaign issue for the organisation for 14 years. In August 2015, the Supreme Court of Uganda ruled that the refund of bride price was unconstitutional, signifying a critical next step in the campaign against the practice and other harmful cultural practices.
