Property Grabbing Evaluation

Funded by: International Justice Mission Country: Uganda Date Range: 2013-2014 Project Lead: NDIGD

Property grabbing, a form of gender violence, is the act of dividing up property and household goods, leaving a woman homeless and without belongings. Women are particularly vulnerable upon the death of a husband or father, when they have recently been left widowed or orphaned. NDIGD was contracted by the International Justice Mission (IJM) to conduct data analysis on household surveys from widows in Mukono County, Uganda. NDIGD provided an analysis of IJM’s intervention strategies, better informing the program of the successes and pitfalls of their program. Ultimately, the feedback that NDIGD provided was used to better meet the needs of victims of property grabbing.
