Description and results

Description

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. In South Africa, the project is implemented by a national women’s rights organization called Gender Links. The project aims to strengthen an estimated 85 local women’s rights organizations, including 2 networks, and to provide them with the capacity, resources and opportunity to advance their priorities for gender equality and women’s empowerment across the most marginalized areas of the country.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) improved management and sustainability of local women’s rights organizations in South Africa; (2) enhanced performance of women’s rights organizations’ programming and advocacy to advance gender equality and empower women and girls; and (3) increased effectiveness of sub-national and national women’s rights platforms, networks and alliances to affect policy, legal and social change in South Africa.
