The objective of this project was increased women participation in elective and appointive positions and enhanced knowledge of women on effective participation in leadership and political process by 2018. This project supported regional Ni Mama Conventions to mobilize support for women candidates. Under this project we also engaged in election observation at the DRG Situation Room.
Our main focus was women in the electoral process. This project has also provided an avenue to build the capacity of women in political party leagues to push the women agenda from within the parties to make the political and electoral process more equitable to women. Lastly, we built the capacity of duty bearers on Gender Responsive Budgeting to enable them to better represent the needs of their constituents.
