Women and girls are powerful leaders who can make positive change in their communities, if only they had the right role models and skills. Worldwide, women encounter deep-rooted gender biases, societal expectations, and gender stereotypes that hinder their path to leadership and economic independence.
Sign on if you believe that women should be in charge of their own destinies.
In many countries, human rights are eroding as climate change hits women particularly hard. For those women who are living in fragile and unpredictable environments, Counterpart International is on the ground to offer hope and assist in creating women-led, transformational change.
We work alongside communities to help them shape change and define their future. We accelerate the process of change by strengthening the capacities of leaders, organizations, and networks to identify challenges and implement their own solutions more effectively and inclusively. And we adopt holistic approaches that promote sustainability through governance, food systems, and women's empowerment.
Counterpart knows that no country can fully realize its potential if women and girls are left behind. Gender equality and women's empowerment are human rights that lie at the heart of development.
