This project is part of Canada’s Women’s Voice and Leadership Program, which supports local and regional women’s organisations and networks that are working to promote women’s rights, and advance women’s empowerment and gender equality in developing countries. This is done by supporting activities, building institutional capacity, and promoting network and alliance-building as women’s rights and feminist organizations are critical agents of change. The Program also responds to the globally recognized, significant gap in funding and support to women’s rights organizations and movements around the world. This project is implemented by Oxfam-Québec. Specifically, this project aims to strengthen the capacity of organizations that work to defend the rights of women and girls and to promote gender equality in their communities in Burkina Faso. The project focuses on three key aspects within beneficiary organizations: institutional and management capacity, quality of service delivery to women and girls, and the effectiveness of their joint actions in support of public policies that benefit women and girls.
