Anne Wallice will be working with the Supporting Access to Justice, Fostering Equity and Peace (SAFE) Program in Kampala, Uganda. The SAFE Program, funded by USAID, seeks to strengthen formal and informal land dispute resolution systems; improve paralegal services; and prevent or transform emerging conflict affecting communities throughout Uganda. By strengthening mechanisms for resolution of conflicts over land, oil, and ethnic diversity, SAFE aims to support peace building and conflict mitigation. The SAFE Program team provides technical assistance, training, mentoring, and grant-making to host-country counterparts and sub-grantee organizations in an effort to achieve its goals.
