Civil society in Uganda is a flood with several violations such as denial to freedom of association, assembly, and expression, Police blockades of access to media and public meetings.

A strong civil society is one that has the ability to advocate for citizen demands, With this idea in mind Defenders Protection Initiative helps civil society and human rights defenders to develop, improve and strengthen their safety and security management skills/knowledge to enable them effectively represent and advocate for citizens despite the dynamic working environment(s) specifically by encompassing their human, scientific, technological, organizational, institutional and resource capabilities.
