Women’s Political Participation & Leadership

AWN believes that women's political participation is essential to building a democratic society. However, AWN is also aware that women's socio-economic empowerment is key to their increased political participation. Through its WPPL strategy, AWN supports women to become decision maker and take on position of authority at the community, subnational and national levels. The WPP is about empowering women to overcome social and cultural barriers that prevent them from participating in society on an equal footing with men. Main activities included in the WPP are a combination of trainings and networking and lobbying activities.
