EFOGE Conference in Uganda

CBE International Logo

Ekklesia Foundation for Gender Education (EFOGE) will hold its 2018 international conference in Kampala, Uganda. EFOGE is an organization of Christians passionate about justice and equality for women and men, girls and boys.

While studies indicate steady growth of the church in the sub-Saharan Africa, they also shockingly reveal high levels of inequality. Many women are still isolated from leadership and decision-making platforms both in church and society. Domestic violence is on the rise while female genital mutilation is widely and secretly practiced against the law, in silence.

Although churches are among the most powerful agents of social change, the fact is that many churches in the region are still rooted in patriarchal traditions which oppose ideas of women leadership and equality. The Bible is often interpreted to teach male leadership and authority which always sidelines and denies women equal opportunity in decision-making processes.

With delegates and faith leaders from sub-Saharan Africa and around the world, this conference invites honest conversation to explore faith and the biblical foundation for equality and justice for women and men in the church and society. This conference aims to equip and empower faith leaders to be strong advocates for equality and justice for women and men in order to end the root causes of poverty and the rampant cases of sexual and gender-based violence in the region.

Join us in Kampala, Uganda this summer and connect with Christians from around the globe, learn how to advocate for equality in your own culture, church and society, and how to be a catalyst for change.
