What We Do

At Child Advocacy & Women’s Rights International, we firmly believe that all women should be allowed basic human rights.Our mission is to promote women’s rights through advocacy and development. Women and children around the world, especially those in developing countries, are in desperate need of financial support, social equality and political representation. These women are the foundation of their communities; however, their voices are unrepresented. Our vision is to educate, enable and empower women and children to help end the cycle of poverty and strengthen communities.

Educate 

As a fundamental human right, and as a basis for future opportunities, education is one of our main focus areas. We believe that education is the first step in empowering women to become productive members of society. Toward this goal, our programs seek to:

  • Promote girls’ primary education
  • Increase access to secondary education for young women
  • Increase access to resources and infrastructure that will improve schools
  • Strengthen educators and create alternative settings for informal learning

Enable

We aim to provide infrastructure and financial aid to support women in attaining their career and personal goals. We seek to give women the foundation they need to be self-sufficient. To actualize this dream:

  • Giving women the tools they need to become independent to effectively benefit their communities as a whole
  • Promote innovative, sustainable technology and alternative resources in today’s energy crisis
  • Creating safe spaces for women to expose them to local education and health services that can help improve their quality of life

Empower

Women often lack the means to exercise their human rights. By promoting equal access to economic, civic, and social resources, we seek to empower women to fulfill their rights through programs that aim to:

  • Create pathways for women to engage in public life, including voting and participation in legislative processes
  • Increase representation of women in decision-making processes and leadership roles
  • Increase access to means of employment and economic resources, including financial independence, training for income-generation, and livelihoods
