Women Empowerment and Gender

The women economic empowerment portfolio has been a cross-cutting focus for CID across a multitude of projects. CID has strategically addressed gender sensitive issues, working on increasing women’s economic empowerment and social inclusion, as well as enhancing digital and financial literacy of women leading to enhanced livelihoods for themselves and their homes, thus integrating the gender equality component into tailored solutions. CID employs a gender-sensitive approach and its expertise in gender includes technical assistance and capacity building to women entrepreneurs, gender sensitive value chain analysis, mainstreaming gender considerations in policy planning, gender-based violence and gender awareness initiatives amongst others.
