Strengthen partnerships and mobilize resources to upscale project interventions and ensure sustainability.

  • Advocate for Gender Equality: Build strategic partnerships with key stakeholders and advocate for policy changes to improve women’s access to economic opportunities and technological resources. Document project learnings and develop evidence-based products to inform future programming.
