Institutional Purpose

A society where there is gender equality, including equal opportunities, contributions to decision-making and access to the legal system.

Working with legal professionals, teachers, students and communities to empower women and girls and promote behavioural change through dissemination of laws related to women, mainstreaming gender into education and facilitating access to justice mechanisms for women and girls.

Overall, ADWLE wants to strengthen the capacity of its staff, members, target groups, partners and volunteers to understand and promote principles of gender equality, CEDAW and laws related to women so that they can:

1) apply them in their own lives, and

2) support other women to apply them in their own lives.
