RAISE YOUR VOICE
Women Thrive Alliance works to strengthen the institutional capacity and impact of grassroots gender equality and women’s rights organizations. We equip them with the skills, knowledge, and resources needed to build support and advocate effectively for the full implementation of Sustainable Development Goal 5 (SDG5), to achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls by 2030.
Our Raise Your Voice capacity-building program provides a global learning community in which Alliance members access tailored tools, coaching, and training on fundraising, communications, and advocacy to help them meet their most pressing needs and build successful advocacy campaigns for SDG5. Through our in-person and online courses, members connect with each other, share their knowledge, learn new skills, and apply their learning to advocacy activities and interactions with decision-makers.
Our Achieve SDG5 Initiative brings grassroots-generated, evidence-based messages to national and global decision-makers to hold governments accountable to Sustainable Development Goal 5 (SDG5) commitments. In Tanzania, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Burundi, Cameroon, and Nigeria, Alliance members have formed Achieve SDG5 coalitions to hold their respective governments accountable to achieving full gender equality by 2030.
#AchieveSDG5 illustrates the widespread support for gender equality worldwide. Around the world, advocates have called for government decision-making processes to be participatory, citizen-driven, and inclusive of grassroots women and girls.
