#CECIforGenderEquality - Global movement for gender equality


Gender equality, the empowerment of women, and a commitment to fight all forms of gender-based discrimination are the cornerstones of our approach to fair and sustainable development, and efficiently fighting against poverty and exclusion.


Anne-Marie Cadieux's Testimony

In Guatemala, CECI is focusing on women’s leadership with green economic development projects, especially with indigenous women. Including women in decision-making bodies and supporting the creation of over 100,000 jobs for women living in Guatemala’s Lake Atitlán region is a great step forward for #CECIforGenderEquality.



Kim Nguyen's Testimony

In Rwanda, Burundi and the DRC, three countries scarred by years of armed conflicts, CECI is working with the communities, civil society and local authorities to end sexual violence against women and girls. Protecting the physical and moral integrity of over 10,000 African women who've been victims of violence is a great step forward for #CECIforGenderEquality.



Chantal Lamarre's Testimony

In Mali, CECI considers women to be key actors in achieving food security. CECI supports them by providing access to seeds, tools and community gardens, for the reactivation os agricultural production. Combating malnutrition and improving food security while helping 10,000 rural women feed their family is a great step forward for #CECIforGenderEquality.



Stanley Péan's Testimony

In Nepal, CECI is ensuring women from all marginalized ethnic backgrounds and casts can participate in decision-making processes, focusing on the use and accessibility of integrated technologies for all. Supporting the inclusion of 30,000 women in local democratic decision-making processes and allowing them to participate is a great step forward for #CECIforGenderEquality.
