Women’s rights at the heart of all that we do

Tackling hardship, inequality and discrimination faced by women is not just the right thing to do, it would be a big step towards ending extreme poverty for everyone. That’s why we are resolutely committed to putting women’s rights at the heart of all that we do. The last year has seen us take steps to ensure all our programmes build women’s participation and leadership, eliminate violence against women, secure women’s economic, empowerment and/or have gender considerations built into programme design.
