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. As a response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the project and its partners have created an inclusive platform of women’s rights organizations (WROs), groups, activists, and networks of women from all over the country. The platform is designed to create an active and broad-based community within civil society to prevent and combat COVID-19 and mitigate its effects on the lives of women and girls. Project activities include: (1) preventing and mitigating COVID-19 impact on women’s lives; (2) lobbying and advocating with a goal to influence favourable decisions to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on women’s lives; and (3) researching and learning to document the impact of COVID-19 on women’s conditions.
