Gender Project

In the crusade against gender inequality and gender-based violence, NELICO stands resolute, weaving a tapestry of empowerment and advocacy through its transformative Gender Project. With a steadfast focus on girls and women, our mission transcends mere rhetoric, delving deep into the fabric of societal change.

At the core of our endeavors lies a commitment to cultivating champions of equality, individuals empowered to challenge the status quo and champion the rights of their peers. Through immersive seminars, workshops, and grassroots practice, these champions emerge as beacons of change, amplifying awareness and fostering solidarity among women of all walks of life.

Central to our vision is the eradication of gender-based violence, a scourge that knows no bounds. Through targeted education and advocacy, NELICO confronts this epidemic head-on, establishing support desks within police stations and enlisting the voices of religious leaders to preach equality from pulpits and minarets alike. By empowering girls and women to speak out against injustice, we sow the seeds of a future where every voice is heard and every grievance addressed.

Yet, our commitment extends beyond rhetoric to tangible economic empowerment. By providing start-up capital to aspiring entrepreneurs, we unlock pathways to financial independence, enabling women to carve out their destinies free from the shackles of dependency.

Education lies at the heart of our approach, with interactive sessions in schools and women’s groups serving as crucibles of enlightenment. From gender-based violence to sexual reproductive health rights, these sessions foster critical thinking and empower participants to challenge societal norms with courage and conviction.

As we traverse the milestones of this journey, we do so with unwavering resolve, cognizant of the challenges yet undeterred in our pursuit of a world where gender equality is not just an aspiration, but a lived reality. Join us as we continue to pave the way towards a future where every girl and woman stands tall, their voices resounding with the echoes of empowerment and opportunity.
