PROTECTION & WOMEN RIGHTS
We protect vulnerable women and girls and we advocate for women's rights. We believe women's rights are human rights and gender equality is a fundamental human right. This is why women's rights and gender equality are at the core of our values, and protection services and advocating for women's rights constitutes the bulk of our activities.
We work to empower women so that they can gain power and control over their own lives and acquire the ability to make strategic choices. We strive to achieve women’s sense of self-worth; their right to have and to determine choices; their right to have access to opportunities and resources; their right to have power to control their own lives, both within and outside the home; and their ability to influence the direction of social change to create a more just social and economic order, nationally and internationally.
EDUCATION AND PEACE
that Education and peace are essential for the ability to exercise rights and consequently for women's empowerment. Education and peace enable girls and boys, women and men to participate in social, economic and political life and is a base for development of a democratic society.
Our approach to humanitarian response is comprehensive and features the full participation of women in the communities
from the beginning of the response, and supporting women's leadership. We see women as more than just potential beneficiaries that need to be consulted, but
rather as organized stakeholders with capacity and and important role in the response.
