A fund to ensure the increased enjoyment of human rights by women and girls, and the advancement of gender equality in South Africa.

The goal of the Women’s Voice and Leadership Programme in South Africa is to support the capacity and activities of local women’s organisations and movements, seek to empower women and girls, advance the protection of women’s and girls’ rights and to achieve gender equality.  This includes increasing funding to local women’s rights organisations and movements, recognising the global funding gap that they face.  In so doing, Women’s Voice and Leadership Programme aims to assist these organisations and movements in their efforts to eliminate discrimination and rights violations in policy and legislation (including implementation) and the provision of services, as well as harmful social beliefs and practices.
