Community Advocates


The Community Advocates Program is a leadership development initiative. WJI selects graduates of its Women’s Rights Education Program to serve in leadership positions in their communities as Community Advocates. Community Advocates participate in a two-year training program that combines comprehensive human rights education with leadership development. Through the program these women become leaders, women’s rights educators, and mentors to their peers. They multiply WJI’s impact by facilitating workshops in their communities and providing accompaniment to women seeking legal support services from WJI.


“I am a woman who is no longer afraid to confront the challenges in my life, in my family, and even in my community. I have discovered myself and know that I have value.” Angelica, WJI
