Steps in shifting power
In our Voice to the People programme in Nigeria, around 90% of people sampled from the communities with which we worked confirmed there has been a positive change in the extent to which women are involved in decision making and leadership.
In Zambia, our partner supported developing relationships with political parties and this contributed to the election of new female MPs.
In Kenya, women leaders have been invited to join the Massai council of elders to advise them on gender and sexual reproductive health – the first time that women have been included in the all-male council.
