About Us

Who we are

We are a Women’s organization that aspires to form a strong and vibrant women’s think tank in Lango sub region that is able to articulate on issues of development from a gender lens

Our core work is based on empowering communities to shape the destiny of their society by investing in Women’s and Girls’ talents latent in the women. We believe that poverty has an inverse relationship with well-developed human capital and with passage of time and opportunities; societies can fulfil their aspirations or miss them. But, if communities invest their resources including time on building human capital for change and development, guided by a mentor, relationships will be nurtured with the participants’ capacity enhanced to identify and tap into existing development ideas, opportunities and resources whose investment have a likelihood to grow provided there is commitment to innovation, creativity, leadership diligence/conscientiousness, transparent accountability at all times.
