CECI’s brand of development transforms unequal gender relations and furthers the realization of women’s rights.
firmly committed to Women’s rights
In its mission and values statement, CECI places the principle of equity in human relations at the centre of its vision and its action. We believe in human dignity and equality before the law, and we work to establish equity between women and men both in society at large and within our own organization.
In order to concretize and entrench these values, CECI has adopted a gender equality policy and a specific strategic orientation for our 2008–2013 plan.
CECI relies on an institutional gender equality committee, a team of gender equality specialists, and a network of volunteer resources, whose role is to advise CECI’s partners and project teams on these issues. In our African, Asian, and Americas program countries, the volunteers provide training, technical support, and consulting on gender equality.
