Discriminatory laws and policies are aggravating inequality and exclusion. Women and girls, the elderly, indigenous peoples, refugees, orphans and Vulnerable Children and migrants are among those adversely affected. Sexual and gender-based violence is a major barrier to sustainable development and impairs the agency and productivity of women and girls.
The 2030 Agenda is committed to ensuring that “no one lags behind” and Includes specific goals on equality (SDG 10), gender equality (SDG 5), and refers also to age discrimination.
Our efforts are cantered on engaging with duty bearers, Institutions and Authorities on the needs to enact laws and policies that reflects the needs and aspirations of the people they serve. Through collaborations and working together with other actors, we agitate, influence and advocate for legislations and policies that addresses the common needs of the people at the grassroot level.
