Musharikat has selected 33 Civil Society Organizations focused on women’s rights to receive grants through the Strengthening Advocacy for Women’s Rights and Empowerment Grants Request for Application (RFA) issued earlier this year. The RFA was designed to achieve three key objectives: development of strong, inclusive Musharikat coalitions, building of Musharikat Coalition member’s advocacy skills, and design and delivery of effective advocacy strategies and campaigns. Proposed projects cover more than 22 provinces and focus on strengthening advocacy around the three-highest priority women’s issues chosen during the Promote Musharikat National Summit in May: Access to Education, Violence against Women and Access to Economic Opportunity.
