We provide programs and services that target the five dimensions of female empowerment and opportunity:
1. Economic participation 2. Economic opportunity 3. Political empowerment 4. Educational attainment 5. Health and well-being
We are currently looking for volunteer bloggers to help increase awareness on women's issues. We are currently seeking creative and dedicated individuals to create diverse content that will enhance our organization's online presence and gain support for our work.
Volunteers are expected to research and write relevant, up-to-date, and well-written posts on issues affecting women/regarding women's empowerment.
Articles that highlight statistics, political discourse, and women in the media are but a few examples. Bloggers may choose to write from journalistic, artistic, or anecdotal perspectives. Essays, poetry, short stories, interviews, even photography is welcomed and appreciated. We are aiming to create a diverse blog with rich and engaging content that will both inform and entertain our readers.
Our mission is to ensure gender equity by promoting sustainable social development.
