Gender-Responsive, Trauma-Informed Programming
Women’s Campaign International strives to provide women and girls across the globe with the resources they need to become leaders in their communities.
WCI has developed several women’s initiatives with grassroots organizations that give women the opportunity to lead. By mobilizing efforts around community solutions, women learn the importance of local engagement, economic sustainability, and conflict transformation.
The tools women learn through WCI’s initiatives inform their abilities as entrepreneurs through financial literacy programs, economic empowerment, communication, diversity, equity, and inclusion, and ultimately inspire their own business development and ownership goals.
Growing and Nurturing Women’s Voices
Growing and nurturing women’s voices to empower their public advocacy and local engagement through initiative training on gender equality, federal, state, local, and international government relations, NGO coalition building, and policy and legislative reform provide women the tools they need to ignite real change.
Leadership in the face of conflict is another critical element of WCI’s initiative programs. Women learn to lead in times of crisis through support with an emphasis on relief, infrastructure support, and the development of educational programs.
