We have helped initiate women’s networks and continue to work with a range of organizations from grassroots level local women’s organizations to national level institutions, which have a direct voice in policy formulation and implementation. Thus, we act as a bridge that closes the gap between high-level policymaking and the marginalized in the work for promoting and protecting women’s rights.
