2/3RD GENDER PRINCIPLE


Description

PROJECT NAME: BEYOND QUOTAS: SECURING THE NOT MORE THAN 2/3RD GENDER PRINCIPLE

DEVELOPMENT PARTNER: URAIA TRUST

YEAR: 2015-2016

This project was aimed at increasing and harmonizing stakeholder engagement in pushing for the implementation of the 2/3rd gender principle and mobilizing women from the grassroots to national level to demand for the implementation of the 2/3rd gender principle. From our capacity building forums, communities were able to appreciate having women in political leadership and governance.

Community forums to popularize the 2/3rd gender principle

We were able to get communities’ support for our popular initiative (Green Amendment Campaign) which was aimed at providing a mechanism for implementation of the 2/3rd gender principle. We so far jointly collected over 1 million signatures towards the same.
