Gender Equality

Empowering women to participate fully in all aspects of life is essential to build stronger economies, and improve the quality of life for families and communities. Live & Learn aims to promote equality between women and men in all aspects of economic, social and political life. We work towards the standard set in the Sustainable Development Goal 5 on gender equality – including the full and equal involvement of women in shaping the vision of development, setting development agendas, and determining needs and priorities….We work to establish strong and functional relationships with men and women in a community before introducing topics that could easily be perceived as attempts to influence culture and challenge men’s authority.

Our focus is on:

  • Promoting women’s voice and agency
  • Promoting women’s decision-making and leadership
  • Exploring how gender-based violence in a community negatively impacts all other progress
  • Promoting women’s economic empowerment
