We work within local structures, platforms, and processes and strengthen local capacity to lead sustainable solutions that advance social development, economic prosperity, and overall equitable outcomes.
We work to explicitly identify gender and social imbalances and constraints, intentionally striving to reduce inequities and foster effective and inclusive engagement to achieve improved development, health, and social impact outcomes within public utilities-focused projects to help achieve sustainable and gender-responsive human development opportunities at all levels of society.
