  • Mobilizing women around specific issues including taking collective action against all kinds of violence and discrimination they face.
  • Strengthening the roles of women in Somalia to articulate their views / positions on various policy issues including women’s participation in politics, good governance, security, peace-building and reconciliation.
  • Strengthening women’s capacity to conduct research on the issues that have an impact on their lives.
  • Encouraging dialogue between women working at the grassroots level to bring about change and women involved in the political arena.
