Challenge

Globally, 1 in 3 women experience violence in their lifetime. Women and girls experience widespread discrimination in every aspect of their lives. At school. In society. In politics. At work. Sexual harassment and the threat of violence is a daily reality. This discrimination is wrong. It traps women and girls in poverty. Gender equality means everyone benefits. Not only individuals, but whole communities. Gender equality leads to better education & health. It promotes economic growth for all.

Solution

Support women to have a voice, to be able to make informed decisions that affect their lives. Empower women within their homes, communities and beyond. Work with women and men to challenge violence against women. Build confidence/self-esteem to increase knowledge & skills. work towards shared decision making within the household. Shared control of household wealth. Build positive attitudes for gender equality. Challenge negative attitudes. Demand rights and equal participation of women.

Long-Term Impact

Our women's empowerment programmes are based on an approach that works at many levels. Reduces the risk of violence to women and girls.
