About Ritah Kaggwa

Ritah Kaggwa is a member of the All African Women’s Group, a self-help group of women asylum seekers and refugees from over 30 different countries. Founded in 2002, AAWG campaigns for safety and protection, and against destitution, detention, sexism, racism and other injustice. The majority of AAWG members are mothers, at least two thirds are destitute, and many are survivors of rape and other torture. The group holds fortnightly meetings and work sessions, where women work on their own and each other’s legal cases providing practical help, especially to women calling from detention.
