We had a Dream … and now we have a Plan …
with the Sustainable Development Goals – Agenda 2030, especially the selected SDGoals below to ensure that Gender Equality, the Empowerment of all Women, and the rights of Rural Women and Girls become a reality by 2030.
WWSF is happy to share with you our 2020 Empowerment Kit “17 Days of Activism for the Empowerment of rural women leaders and their constituencies to Rise and Claim their rights 1-17 October”, and inform you that our annual 17 Days Call to Action is focused on the UN Sustainable Development Goals – Agenda 2030 – leaving no one behind.
We invite you to join us as an active campaign coalition partner and share the proposed ideas for action with your civil society network, grassroots, and rural women’s movements and groups. “It is estimated that 1.7 billion women and girls live in rural areas, it is more than one-fifth of humanity. Globally one in three women are employed in agriculture, including forestry and fishing. They contribute substantially to agriculture production and perform the biggest share of unpaid domestic work within rural households.” (IFAD).
WWSF Campaign Objectives
Activism must connect with real people on the ground.
The annual WWSF empowerment Kit offers information, tools, resources, and ideas for action to mobilize rural women leaders and their communities to Rise and Claim their fundamental human rights.
Please note that you and your organization are free to choose the themes most appropriate for your work in your region and context. We recognize that there are many other issues in addition to the proposals presented in the Kit, and we encourage you to focus on your local priorities. Now is the time to give credit where it’s due. Activism must connect with real people on the ground.
An annual impact report is published presenting the coalition member organizations that join the 17 Days of Activism Campaign and send us a brief report.
Remember Together we can do what no one can do alone. To quote Eleanore Roosevelt “You must do what you think you cannot do”.
