We respect and defend the rights and dignity of all – from our work to challenge caste and gender-based discrimination in South Asia to defending the rights of transgender human rights activists in Central America.
Gender justice has been at the heart of our work for many years, but we have recognised that for programming to be truly transformative, it must also recognise the impact of other aspects of social vulnerability.
We tackle different aspects of inequality depending on the specific context, needs and opportunities for change. Some of our country programmes tackle gender-, race-, ethnicity-, caste- or religion-based exclusion, in others our work focuses on exclusion on the basis of sexual orientation or health status.
We press governments and global institutions to implement policies and laws that combat inequality and discrimination. Working through partnerships with churches and interfaith networks, we challenge intolerance and promote inclusion.
We work with and train faith leadersand faith-based organisations to understand and address inequitable social norms and harmful practices.
