The objectives of the program were to (i) Increase the number of leaders in these countries capable of fostering transformational change to strengthen programs that empower women; and (ii) Increase the number and diversity of organizations (including women’s rights organizations, trade unions, rural development organizations, etc.) in these countries that are effective at facilitating women’s access to economic resources, keeping women safe from violence, and driving progressive policy change.
