Our Philosophy

We believe that women’s empowerment can only be achieved through a combination of factors that include economic strengthening for women, increasing knowledge of women’s rights and GBV at an individual level whilst changing harmful gender norms through engaging men and communities to understand the nexus between power and gender equitable attitudes and behaviours.
