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. The project is implemented by the Centro de Aprendizagem e Capacitação da Sociedade Civil (CESC) [Learning and Capacity Building Centre for Civil Society], a Mozambican NGO. Approximately 44 women’s rights organizations (WROs), selected amongst emergent/informal women’s groups, established WROs and WROs working with networks and movements are expected to be direct project beneficiaries in 3 geographic regions of the country.
