Our Work

Educating women & girls IN AFGHANISTAN

Millions of girls and young women in Afghanistan have no access to formal education. We provide a ray of hope through our community-based primary education and training in computer literacy, coding and web development.

LAND FOR WOMEN IN INDIA

Only 1 in 6 rural Indian women owns the land they work on. We partner with experts and on-ground NGOs to enable marginalised  women to access and own land, empowering them to become independent, self-reliant and financially secure.

Preventing violence against women & girls

Gender-based violence a is a global issue. We partner with organisations to raise awareness, mobilise communities and change social norms to end violence against women and girls.

Challenging gender bias in media IN THE MENA REGION

Stereotypes of women in the media contribute to bias and discrimination. We reshape the narrative by amplifying women’s voices and supporting local media projects focused on gender equality.

Marcia Soares

Executive Director, Themis (Brazil)

Womanity has carved a niche in India’s Women and Land space with their distinct approach. Our key takeaways come from their open mindset to listen, learn and co-create solutions with stakeholders. Womanity is crafting and expanding a diverse collective that will surely disrupt and transform women’s land relations.

PRANAB RANJAN CHOUDHURY

Associate Director, Centre for Land Governance (India)

I am very pleased as the past year was great for me. I learned how to read and write, developed my drawing skills, excelled in Math, becoming better at calculations, multiplications and divisions. Our village doesn’t have a school for girls but I’m happy with the class and look forward to continuing next year. Throughout the year, I had everything I needed for the lessons, including notebooks, pens, a school bag, colour pencils, and more.

Many women do not know their rights. Radio Nisaa is giving us an opportunity to be informed and to share our opinions in a discreet way, without disclosing our identity.
