The Equal Opportunities Commission (EOC) commended the Ministry of Defence and Veteran Affairs (MODVA) for providing equal Opportunities to all eligible beneficiaries during planning and budgeting.

The Equal Opportunities Commission (EOC) commended the Ministry of Defence and Veteran Affairs (MODVA) for providing equal Opportunities to all eligible beneficiaries during planning and budgeting.

This revelation was made during a training for staff from MODVA in conjunction with the EOC on Gender and Equity planning and budgeting workshop at the Defence Ministry headquarters in Kampala.

Participants at the two-day (19-20th October 2021) Gender and Equity planning and budgeting training applauded the MODVA for eliminating discrimination and marginalization based on gender, color, physical appearance, or religious affiliation, among others.

Mr. Julius Kamya, the Commissioner for Education and Communication at the EOC noted that availing equal opportunities to all gender whenever deployments are done unmasks the hidden potential in some individuals.

“If we all consider gender and equity when planning and budgeting, our country will prosper in all sectors,” said Mr. Kamya. 

The Equal Opportunities Commissioner encouraged the appreciation of people with uniqueness, adding that selective treatment of workers should be abolished. 

He further called for the equitable distribution of opportunities so that everyone gets a platform in the transformation of society.

The MODVA Human Resource Commissioner Mr. Alfred Cox Anguzu lauded the EOC for bridging the training gap at the Defence Ministry. He called for the continuous provision of equal opportunities at all MODVA chieftaincies, directorates and departments.

The training was attended by representatives from different MODVA/UPDF units and formations.
