Description and results


This project works to provide support to local women’s rights organizations (WROs) and coalitions, working towards the realization of the rights of women and girls, especially those belonging to the poorest and marginalized sectors of society. Project activities include: (1) building their organizational capacity in: leadership and governance; program development and management; financial management; resource mobilization; and partnership building; (2) providing support to WRO’s programming and services to at least 54,000 women and girls; and (3) strengthening networks and alliances at the national and local levels to influence policy reform and implementation. The project aims to benefit approximately 60 WROs and 6 coalitions.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) enhanced delivery of quality services and advocacy by WROs to advance gender equality in the Philippines; (2) improved management, programming and sustainability of local WROs in the Philippines, particularly those representing vulnerable and marginalized women and girls; and (3) increased effectiveness of national and sub-national women’s rights platforms, networks and alliances to affect gender- sensitive policy change and implementation.
