Women, Girls, & Gender

In every corner of the world, women and girls are abused, neglected, and forgotten. They are denied basic human rights and often face physical, mental, and emotional trauma from violence. ADRA recognizes the unique vulnerability of women and girls and seeks to address their needs through targeted projects.

Our programs are community-based and involve the whole family so that our efforts are effective in sustainably increasing knowledge and changing behavior. ADRA considers gender equity and the empowerment of women as a cross-cutting intervention for all of our programs.
