Gender Equality

CHOICE believes that communities and economies are stronger when there is equal and full participation of women, men, girls, and boys. Closing the gap between males and females and creates a lasting impact that benefits everyone.

Girls and women in developing countries are disadvantaged from the beginning as they bear almost the entire responsibility of proving the basic needs for their families, yet are largely left without the resources, freedom, and decision making power required to fulfill these needs. CHOICE is committed to programs that empower women to take an active and equal role in community-level decision making and leadership and to organize themselves around projects and programs that strengthen their ability to meet family needs.
