The world is safer and stronger when fewer people face destitution, when societies are freer, more democratic, and more inclusive, protecting the basic rights and human dignity of all citizens. By focusing on these goals, together, we position ourselves to meet the challenges of today while mitigating the risks of tomorrow.
Traditional ideas about the roles of girls and women restrict their contributions to communities. These ideas hold women back from active participation to important development goals; and advancement especially in the areas of economic growth, wage equality and security.
Women are underrepresented in decision-making positions.
When women have the freedom to reach their potential, all families and communities will grow stronger.
We believe in empowering women to exercise their rights as guaranteed by the Constitution.
Our partners are bringing the perspectives of women and girls and their full participation to the front-lines; and men and boys are important partners in this effort.
