Strengthening indigenous women efforts
We support and strengthen indigenous women efforts to access justice, protect women’s sexual and reproductive rights, and promote economic advancement through promoting women’s meaningful participation in economic policy and decision making.
Our programme confronts these issues of unequal access to land and property, killings of infants/unwanted pregnancies related to outcast norms are very high, indigenous women are prevented from making personal decision. We support women initiatives and capacity building that enabled achieve their human dignity. SWT is working toward the realization of women’s empowerment and protecting the rights and improving the livelihoods of women and girls at the community level.
The organization carries out capacity building of indigenous women in order to increase their skills and knowledge in addressing human rights atrocities that are subjected to them as a result of existing cultural norms and traditions. Among other efforts the organization conducts economic empowerment of women to make sure that women are self-reliant and actively participate in key decision making processes in the community.
