3. The Customary Land Rights Empowerment Project.
The customary land rights empowerment is a project that seeks to address challenges faced by the Local Council courts in adjudicating land rights related matters particularly customary land disputes in Northern Uganda. It seeks to work with the Local Council courts in the districts of Nwoya and Amuru because these courts are of first instance to resolve disputes arising from land. It seeks to extend legal support to the Local Council Courts through convening strategic trainings on the Rules of Procedure and Principles of Natural Justice to enable them handle customary land matters with ease.

4. The National Dialogue Community Ambassadors.
This program arose from the informal consultations of Inter-Religious Council of Uganda (IRCU) and the Elders Forum of Uganda (TEFU) with Key stakeholders on a framework to convene a National Dialogue to bring together all Ugandans from all walks of life to discuss and agree on the new consensus on managing the social, economic and political affairs of the country. The Project saw over 300 young people convene in Soroti, Eastern Uganda to get the views of the young people to form part of the National Dialogue question.
