Women’s Enjoyment of Rights, Empowerment and Leadership (WE’RE Leaders)

Beginning Date   Ending Date
April 2019 March 2023


WE’RE Leaders is a four-year initiative (2019-2023) funded by Global Affairs Canada (GAC). The project is being implemented by TDEA along with member organizations of the Free and Fair Election Network (FAFEN). The project’s goal is to enhance women’s political participation in Pakistan, particularly focusing on the young, and the marginalized. In keeping with the commitments made by GAC and TDEA, concerning the empowerment of women, the WE’RE Leaders project has adopted a multi-pronged approach to enhance women’s civil and political participation. On the one hand, our project interventions are strengthening the supply side by working towards a conducive gender-positive environment consisting of governmental and institutional support powered by gender-sensitive laws and regulations. While, on the other, our interventions are targeting the demand side by building the capacity of women at the grassroots to cause a societal shift that encourages women to adopt a more active role in public life.

The project will directly benefit over 300,000 women while reaching out to an estimated 70 million citizens through its various interventions.
