Empowering Communities: RFLD’s Pioneering Feminist Work in West and Central Africa

In the tapestry of West and Central Africa, a beacon of hope and progress shines brightly through the Réseau des Femmes Leaders pour le Développement, known as the Network of Women Leaders for Development (RFLD). This feminist organization stands as a testament to the resilience and determination of women, dedicated to fostering positive change, advocating for human rights, and promoting gender equality. As we look ahead to our Strategic Plan for 2023-2028, we extend an invitation to our partners to be part of this transformative journey.

A Vision of Progress: RFLD’s Enduring Mission

The RFLD’s mission is anchored in the firm belief that empowering women and promoting gender equality are pivotal steps toward building a just and prosperous society. Our strategic goals for the coming years underline our commitment to advancing women’s rights, improving sexual and reproductive health, and amplifying women’s voices in decision-making processes.

Goal 1: Furthering Women’s Rights

The first goal in our strategic plan is an unwavering commitment to advancing women’s rights. We believe in empowering women to claim their rights, stand up against injustices, and become catalysts for transformative change within their communities.

Goal 2: Promoting Civil Liberties and Democratic Values

RFLD advocates passionately for civil liberties, democratic values, and human rights. By organizing awareness campaigns, workshops, and initiatives, we aim to foster an environment where fundamental freedoms and human rights are upheld and respected.

Goal 3: Economic and Climate Justice for Women

We strongly advocate for economic and climate justice, recognizing that women are disproportionately affected by economic disparities and the impacts of climate change. Our efforts are directed towards supporting sustainable development initiatives, advocating for gender-inclusive economic policies, and promoting environmental sustainability.

Goal 4: Strengthening Participatory Governance and Media Development

Participatory governance, innovation, and a thriving media are essential for the growth of a just society. RFLD is committed to strengthening these principles, enhancing the innovative capacity of civil society, and nurturing the development of a media landscape that amplifies women’s voices and stories.

Partnering for Impact: Engaging with RFLD
