The WPC currently has a 5-year Strategic Plan 2011-2015 that is focused on two major program areas:
Gender Discrimination and Violence: in this area, WPC empowers local communities to create awareness of gender, its dynamics and effects on women's welfare and the society. We support the communities to take actions that promote understanding and behavior change towards gender equality. The intervention consists in creating community awareness on gender dynamics, the social and policy context and their effects on women’s welfare; and strengthening and advocating for effective gender sensitive policies and laws that enable women to achieve their rights, with special concern for sexual and reproductive health rights.
Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR): in this area we implement community mobilization strategies to increase women and girls' access to life saving sexual and reproductive information, promote access to quality and safe reproductive services, promote safe motherhood, prevent unsafe abortions and advocate for policy change to achieve reproductive rights for women and youth. WPC promote sexual and reproductive rights as human rights and support the use of Human Rights framework to highlight SRHR violations. We are mobilizing, networking and campaigning with our partners, women's groups and other key stakeholders.
We believe in the power of every woman
