Enabling Access to Information
Information is power, a power that women from marginalised communities are largely denied. We believe that there is a need to enable access to information and knowledge—the creation and consumption of it—in ways that simplify and demystify information and ideas, to present them with a gender and equity perspective.
Promoting Empowering Literacy
We believe that literacy and education processes should be made available to women, especially women from marginalised communities, and should connect with their lived realities, enabling them to take control of their lives by developing and sustaining skills of critical reflection.
A Feminist Approach to Learning and Education
We believe that structured teaching-learning spaces – both formal and non-formal – are vital arenas through which gender equality can be promoted. Through a critical engagement with content and pedagogy from a feminist perspective, learning spaces and experiences for young people can be transformed.
A Positive and Political Approach to Sexuality
Our approach seeks to understand sexuality beyond sexual violence to the exploration and expression of desires; a critical and political perspective seeks to build an in-depth understanding of sexual and gender norms and how and why they impact our lived realities.
