Community & Citizens Empowerment

This program area aims to empower communities, women, men, boys and girls with knowledge and skills to influence public behavior and attitude change that support good governance, and women’s participation in leadership and decision making. When citizens know their rights and constitutional responsibilities they are in a better position to engage electively in their governance, elect leaders of good standing, and ensure that the leaders (elected and holding public office) remain accountable and committed to the delivery of quality social services.

Strategic objective: To take lead in influencing the integration and delivery of key aspects in national civic education programs that support women’s participation in governance


The rationale for these programs is to continue strengthening women’s capacity in leadership, political representation, economic empowerment, decision making, protection and promotion of human rights for good governance and sustainable development
