We just learned that two of our women project leaders have decided to run for Parliament in the upcoming elections! One of these women is leading a project involving expanding knowledge of property rights among rural women, and the other is working on raising awareness of the rights of women so as to combat domestic violence. Their engagement in national government will help ensure that these same concerns will have consideration among lawmakers and further encourage women’s participation in decision-making at all levels. We anticipate that several more of our women changemakers will decide to participate more actively in local and national government over the next year, as they experience the possibility of creating meaningful social change in their communities.
We have 14 more preparing their project plans for seed funding and implementation, and six more teams in the training we are leading this month. We expect all social ventures will be ready to launch by year end.
