Making gender equality a reality.

Women Thrive is Going to Sierra Leone!

Posted on May 3, 2017 by Women Thrive Alliance

Women Thrive is very happy to announce that we will be facilitating our Raise Your Voice advocacy workshop in Freetown, Sierra Leone from May 22-25!

A few months back, our Alliance member Girl Child Network asked Women Thrive to support a national coalition it was a member of, the Forum Against Harmful Practices (watch the video of Anita and Salimatou below!). The Forum brings together over 20 local women’s rights and gender equality organizations working to eradicate Female Genital Mutilation and Cutting (FGM/C) in Sierra Leone. 

Hear Alliance members, Anita and Salimatou, explain why they need Women Thrive's Raise Your Voice Advocacy workshop: 

Such workshops are crucial for grassroots organizations. By giving them the skills they need, we support local change makers in strengthening their influence and impact. 

If you would like to support Women Thrive's workshops like the one in Sierra Leone, consider supporting us today. Help us support women like Anita and Salimatou to create national advocacy campaigns and fight harmful practices.
