WE BUILT SKILLS
Women Thrive Alliance built the skills of hundreds of grassroots women’s rights and gender equality groups through tailored workshops, online courses, tools, and resources. We directly trained more than 150 individual advocates every year on advocacy, fundraising, and communications.
By participating in our skills-building activities, grassroots groups were able to:
- Form strong coalitions and develop impactful, evidence-based advocacy strategies;
- Become more visible online and increase their communications skills;
- Gain the fundraising skills needed to support their advocacy for gender equality; and
- Get better equipped to participate actively in the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals.
WE CREATED CHANGE
We provided our member organizations with an advocacy model centered on grassroots-generated, evidence-based messages to hold governments accountable to SDG5 commitments. We were changing the narrative and practice of gender and development by bringing global women’s rights priorities and feminist development approaches to the table.
Through our flagship social media campaign, #AchieveSDG5, we united over 300 women’s rights and gender equality advocates in 30+ countries to stand up and raise awareness of the global goal on gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls.
