Womankind Worldwide is a global women right’s organisation working in partnership with women’s rights organisations and feminist movements to transform the lives of women and girls. Our current priority thematic areas are to end violence against women, promote women’s economic rights and ensure women have a voice in decision making.
We work to support and strengthen women’s movements to change the world for women. We are based in the UK and work in partnership with women’s rights organisations, feminist groups and movements in Africa, Asia and at the global level. Our current focus countries are Ethiopia, Kenya, Nepal, Uganda and Zimbabwe. We support women’s movements to strengthen and grow by carrying out diverse joint activities, including women’s rights programming, awareness raising, knowledge sharing, research, capacity development and fundraising. At the international level, we work in partnership with women’s organisations and movements to influence governments and international agencies to protect and promote women’s rights.
In the ECID programme, Womankind provides technical assistance on gender equality and social inclusion across the programme activities to ensure a gender analysis and gender responsiveness of the entire programme. Womankind also supports the programme’s policy and advocacy aspect especially on issues related to gender quality and women’s rights. We will also contribute to effectiveness of civil society through cross sectional movement strengthening.
