The Region’s women, like all indigenous women in the State, confront sociocultural and political, economic, environmental, education and climate-related obstacles that limit their potential as leaders.
Our women partners work for a new reality. They engage in leader and citizen education. They have created their unprecedented regional development agenda. And they build their own Umbrella Network of women-led organizations and regional cooperative.
Our theory of work is that PSYDEH and women partners understand that democratic governance is driven by citizen participation. Both are key to development and most effective when citizen participation, civil society and local government are simultaneously strengthened. Informed participation and responsible governance leads to transparency and accountability and improved delivery of basic services.
