Sostine Namanya is the Gender & Food Security Project Officer for AJWS grantee National Association of Professional Environmentalists (NAPE) in Uganda. She coordinates an eco-feminist grassroots advocacy network that works to raise awareness, share knowledge, and directly resist environmental destruction while creating do-no-harm models of development.
NAPE is Uganda’s leading environmental protection organization, successfully leading initiatives against mining and destructive oil drilling in Uganda’s Albertine Rift Valley and fighting for the protection of pristine forest around Lake Victoria from massive palm oil plantations. In partnership with its sister organization, the National Association for Women’s Action in Development, NAPE has brought together more than 5,000 women from across Uganda to demand gender and economic justice from the government and its industrial partners.
