"We believe that the material and practical considerations of women and girls’ daily lives will only be significantly improved when we have full and equal power in decision making at all levels.The aim of this programme is to support a diverse range of women’s rights organisations to fight against systems which perpetuate the injustices they encounter in their daily lives."

  • Advocacy or Campaigning organisations
  • Service delivery organisations
  • Research bodies
  • Think tanks
  • Registered community organisation
  • Women’s funds
