2. Providing Safe Physical and Virtual Spaces for women and girls

  • Support communities through providing physical and/or online space, particularly women who face increased social isolation or multiple barriers to inclusion.

  • Through group or one to one support or training.
  • Around getting their voices and issues better heard and understood by decision makers.
