Strengthening gender equality and a human rights-based approach across all areas of expertise.

Gender equality and human rights are at the core of what we do.

Our work in the gender sector includes state institution building, civil society capacity development and the provision of technical advisory services to various development partners such as the European Commission, the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency as well as the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development. Key areas include Gender Responsive Budgeting, Women, peace and security, and Gender and Resilience.

Our work in the human rights sector focuses on equal access to rights and services by empowering people to be aware of and exercise their rights for access to basic services such as education, healthcare and the justice system.
