A propos de Ruth Ojiambo Ochieng

Ruth Ojiambo Ochieng is an independent consultant and researcher, coach, and facilitator based in Uganda.  Her strength lies in building alliances and collaborative agendas between the marginalized, the elite, and the policymakers so as to challenge injustices, prejudice, taboos and stigma related to women survivors of violence in situations of armed conflicts. Ruth holds a M.A. in Communications Policy Studies and a B.Sc. in Information and Communication.

She has also undertaken several short courses in Gender, Facilitation of Organizational Development, advocacy and peace building and Conflict Resolution. During her tenure at Isis-WICCE, Ruth enabled the establishment of effective programmes that have amplified women’s voices and influenced post-conflict decision making and programming at all levels, in addition to supporting women’s leadership in communities affected by conflict and coordinating healing camps.

These processes led to the development of manuals centred on women’s human rights for use in training of activists and practitioners.  Ruth has authored many published papers and articles, and coordinated the development of an array of video documentaries on Women, Conflict and Human Security that have been instrumental in informing national, regional and international policies and frameworks. She serves on several boards including: the African Partnership for Women’s Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights of Women and Girls (AMANITARE), based in South Africa; the International Coordinating Committee of Women Human Rights Defenders (global); Centre for Domestic Violence (CEDOVIP), in Uganda.  She also serves on the Action Aid (Uganda) General Assembly.
