Why South Asia?
South Asia is politically, geographically, and economically diverse, with increasing opportunities for growth but also substantial challenges – in disaster recovery and preparedness, violence against women, education, and water supply and access.
- Work with local partners to give women the confidence, tools and training they need to be self-sufficient and economically empowered;
- Help communities integrate gender equality in rehabilitation and reconstruction processes following natural disasters;
- Increase the capacity of communities, local organizations and government to provide effective services for those affected by gender-based violence; and
- Support local partners to build more resilient, self-sufficient and sustainable communities.
