Gender Equality

Sustainable changes in the lives of poor people can only happen when men and women are treated equally. That means equal access to and control of resources and benefits, equal participation in political decision-making and equality under the law. In all our work, we take account of gender equality and try to empower women and girls to achieve their full potential.
