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 the Centre d’étude et de coopération internationale (CECI). It directly supports 20 women rights organizations at the local level, and 5 organizations networks representing more than 20 organizations each. In addition, this project allows women organizations to adopt innovative management practices that contribute to their program’s sustainability and to ensure better quality of their services and, through innovative approaches, to conduct networking, advocacy and social monitoring activities that indirectly benefit more than 100 000 people in the country.
