Women for Change

CRPC often support Center for Girls, our close partners, who are leading this project to:

  • Train women leaders in the community
  • Raise awareness about domestic violence
  • Create a watchdog in the community

Investing in the development, empowerment and capacity building of women has shown to have positive results not only for the women involved, but also for their children and communities.
