Organizational approach towards delivery of gender-sensitive, rights-based projects:

On the basis of objectively done situation analysis and in cognizance of the ground realities, the organization develops its operational strategies to maximize qualitative results at the ultimate outcome level for the empowerment of women, girls and other vulnerable communities by providing them with the appropriate knowledge and skills, as well as organizing them for identifying and tapping into economic growth opportunities. Increasing women workers' understanding on gender issues, protection against harassment, exploitation & violence and educating women workers on civic, economic, political and workers’ rights are the added key endeavors made by the organization.

 

Strong community mobilization component is also integrated to encourage decision makers in the families and the respective communities to allow women to get training on locally marketable income generating skills, set up women-led enterprises or find jobs and most importantly have control over their income.

 

All of these measures positively influence women’s capacity to (i) challenge gender biased stereotypes (ii) increase role of women in economic activities and decision-making at the level of their homes, workplaces and communities (iii) increased access of vulnerable women workers to social protection services that can safeguard their economic and social rights and save them from domestic violence and exploitation & harassment at the workplace.

The organization enjoys an enviable level of credibility among the relevant stakeholders regarding usefulness of its interventions aiming at socioeconomic empowerment of women & girls.
