Gender and Women’s Empowerment

SIDRA believes that women are key to development and to poverty reduction in Somalia. Research and advocacy plans for Somali women’s empowerment and greater involvement in decision making  remain at the heart of all SIDRA’s Gender programme initiatives whether it is through access to micro-credit, through capacity strengthening, through involvement in peace building and conflict resolution, or in leadership and governance.

Strategically, SIDRA will expand its investment in Somali women’s empowerment through women entrepreneurship and micro-credit programs, through research, through gender mainstreaming capacity building of institutions in Puntland.
