This thematic area seeks to achieve an empowered church that is an effective instrument of gender justice in Church and Society.
Expected outcome: An increase in women’s participation in decision making in church-based institutions and churches throughout the region.
The Key Strategic interventions under this thematic area will include:
Create awareness on the women participation among church leaders’/ faith actors who will cascade the knowledge to the community – thus change attitudes & behaviors.
Build the capacity of women in leadership so that they advocate for their gender representation at the Church, public, and political sphere.
Develop FECCLAHA gender policy to complement the gender mainstreaming strategy within the organisation.
Institute country Gender Ambassadors/gender focal persons among FECCLAHA members – This will then build a critical mass of gender justice champions.
