June 1, 2010
My name is Annette Mukabera, a young retired Politician from Uganda. I got to know WIN through an inter-cultural exchange programme while I was serving as a Member of Parliament in the Parliament of Uganda(2001-2006). WIN provided me with oppotunities that have empowered me to serve my Country especially the most under privilaged. Through the WIN connections, I have received training, Awards for hard work and I have been humbled by the dedication and determination of this organisation that has crossed all possibly named barriers to bring the plight of women to the front and strengthened the womens' circle in the world to unite Women.
My first experience happened in 2001 when I had just been elected as a Woman representative. I had so many ideas but was not really focused in relation to my priorities. Howeverr this exchange exposed me to the possiblities of change through planning, partnerships, networking, fundraising and prioritising my work. since then I am systematically working for my country.
At any given time I am proud to have known WIN for I have the strength to cause change in my work.
