Gender equality – equal rights and opportunities for women and men, girls and boys – is central to all areas of our work. We have longstanding experience of promoting gender equality, both as an integrated part of our projects and through stand-alone interventions.

What we do

  • We have expertise in key areas such as women’s economic empowerment, gender mainstreaming, gender budgeting and human rights, with a gender equality focus.
  • We carry out training programmes and study visits to strengthen local and national decision-making bodies, institutions and CSO capacity in the field of human rights and gender equality.
  • We review the design of programmes to mainstream gender and human rights.
  • We work with partners to promote human rights for women and men, girls and boys, and promote gender-equal societies, taking advantage of diversity to deliver sustainable change.
