What We Do

Collective Action & Feminist Movement Building

We mobilize and strengthen feminist based collective actions and practice meaningful ways of working with each other to be visible, strong and diverse enough to result in concrete and sustainable change in achieving gender equality in Somalia.

Leadership Development & Empowerment

We provide capacity development and empowerment for our members and feminist grassroots groups to build stronger grassroots movements with the confidence, information, skills and strategies they need to bring dramatic changes in norms, laws, policies and practices toward achieving gender equality in Somalia.

Advocacy & Awareness Rising

We use the influence of art, music, culture, poetry, social media, feminist activism to promote the safety, equality, justice, rights and dignity of girls, young women and other marginalized groups.
