Gender Equality

Shine With Skills recognizes that achieving gender equality is key to stronger economies, happier families, and thriving communities. Their mission is to dismantle barriers and create a level playing field for women and men in all aspects of life – economic, social, and political.

Aligned with Sustainable Development Goal 5, Live & Learn works to ensure women have a powerful voice. This includes involving them fully in shaping development plans, setting priorities, and making decisions that affect their communities.

Understanding the importance of sensitivity, Live & Learn builds trust and strong relationships with both men and women before introducing potentially challenging topics. This collaborative approach avoids a top-down feel and ensures their interventions are culturally appropriate and sustainable.

In essence, Live & Learn works hand-in-hand with communities to empower women and create a brighter future for all.

Our focus is on:

Amplifying Women’s Voices: Creating space for women to express themselves and be heard on issues that matter to them.
Empowering Women Leaders: Encouraging and supporting women to take on leadership roles in their communities and organizations.
Breaking the Cycle of Violence: Recognizing how gender-based violence hinders progress and working to create safe, supportive environments for all.
Unlocking Economic Opportunities: Equipping women with the tools and resources they need to achieve financial independence and contribute to the community’s economic well-being.
